Viennale Festival trailer by James Benning: Fire & Rain

The annual festival trailer has been one of the Viennale's special features for quite some time now. It is not a commercial trailer as such, but rather a small, autonomous piece of cinema, standing on its own and for the festival alike.

In the case of James Benning's work this short trailer is a true action film. Benning shot the work process in a steelworks in the Ruhr area. On a kind of conveyor belt, a glowing piece of steel flits across the screen and disappears only to reappear again as a blazing, shining material. Finally, artificial rain falls onto the glowing metal, shrouding the whole image in a cloud of steam and making it disappear.

Created at the Viennale's invitation, James Benning's short film is both a simple and subtle piece of cinema. "I took the steel rolling process that takes about 10 minutes," as the filmmaker explains his approach, "and condensed it down to one minute by cutting out portions and hiding the ellipses in time with dissolves."

Following last year's Viennale trailer by Jean-Luc Godard, which turned out to be a small miracle of montage art, Benning's work is an equally fascinating cinematic poem about time and motion - taking an industrial work process as an example. And it would not be James Benning, had he not chosen the title of an old hippie song by James Taylor as the title for his trailer: Fire and Rain.

The festival trailer Fire & Rain will be screened from September 24 in more than 100 selected Austrian cinemas and will be shown repeatedly as part of the Viennale program from October 22 to November 4.

Movie industry has been so

Movie industry has been so successful many years until now.Megan Fox is aesthetically pleasing – and we all know it, but that seems to not make much of a difference on the quality of her work, as evidenced by the Jennifer's Body reviews.  The Jennifer's Body reviews prove that it doesn't matter how good looking the cast is.  Most critics have torpedoed the film as a cross between Rosemary's Baby and Carrie – with the talent of those books' writers.  The previous works of the writer, Diablo Cody (a pseudonym) had been very highly regarded.  It turns out that maybe the Jennifer's Body reviews were right – because it was a dismal, pathetic, detestable failure at the box office – perhaps the producers will need same day loans to cover losses.

Making a Mark


 

A man from the state of Chu was crossing a river. In the boat, his sword fell into the water. Immediately he made a mark on the boat.
"This is where my sword fell off," he said. When the boat stopped moving, he went into the water to look for his sword at the place where he had marked the boat. The boat had moved but the sword had not. Is this not a very foolish way to look for a sword  Gucci?
