HARUN FAROCKI TRIBUTE

What is the most activist, the most subversive film in the history of cinema? To this question that the author of these lines posed in Cahiers du Cinéma to diverse filmmakers and historians, the young Argentinean filmmaker Mauro Andrizzi, director of the exemplary Iraqi Short Films (2008), replied: Videograms of a Revolution by Harun Farocki and Andrei Ujica (1992). To justify his choice, he drafted the following argument, which should please the author of the most radical activist forms of visual critique in cinema and video: ‘How to make a revolution with television. Good example of possible uses of the web. Best moment in the film: Ceausescu’s face captured by the official TV station, when people storm the Bucharest’s Central Committee. No countershot of the crowd, just his frozen face, staring nowhere. Then, the camera points to the sky, and there’s only sky and shouts. Pure Cinema. The revolution, live».
