Real? (The Cranes Are Flying)

Prawdziwe? (Lecą żurawie)
dir. Anna Baumgart/Poland/2001/3 min.
Iluzjon, sala Mała Czarna

Anna Baumgart uses the strategy of found footage to become the heroine of the renowned Soviet film by Mikhail Kalatozov “The Cranes Are Flying” from 1957. Tapping into the potential offered by the film technique, the artist replaces the actress’s face with her own. The video, which lasts less than three minutes, presents the scene of a dramatic quarrel between two lovers. Baumgart critically analyses the impact of the media on the imagination. “The Cranes Are Flying” is a part of a cycle, which include also “Teddy Bear”.
