The first two minutes extracted from this GDR/Poland made science fiction film show remarkable action and speed. But then you will find this Nature Cut to become an exercise in mediation. Almost nothing happens in the outer space, but - surprise, surpirise - there is a nice little film within the film, a charming hand drawn animation, so its worth to watvh the whole piece!
Nature Cut is a conceptual film history that covers the years 1950 to 1975. Each Nature Cut follows the same principle: Removal of all scenes showing people (unless they are 'reproduced' on another media like papers or TV-sets) reduces each film from the original length, usually 90 minutes, to between roughly 2 and 7 minutes. Films of that era had a comparatively slow tempo. The Nature Cut reduction accelerates these films to a rhythm in keeping with current times and youth.
