XXV. Black International Cinema Berlin 2010 (May 4-8) We have a dream! We came from privileged backgrounds in the USA. Families intact, sufficient economic resources, university education, travel, etc. All of these we took for granted. When we were young, we thought everyone had the same lifestyle.

Interview: Chris Petit by Programmer Erwin Houtenbrink

Programmer Erwin Houtenbrink interviews Chris Petit. Thirty years ago, Chris Petit directed Radio On, now considered a road movie cult classic. His latest film, Content, is an ambient 21st-century road movie, an associative film essay inspired by driving’s trancelike state rather than any linear unfolding of the road. Why are you using an actor (Hanns Zischler) for your own observations and comments in your film as a voice-over? What’s the purpose of this distancing device? The text for ...
