|Experimental film | HD Video | color | 13'0'' | Germany | 2010
A textscape of words, sentences, script, diary, sketch. Words before images. The film image here is a pure word image, vast, rushing by before meaning emerges, impossible to grab to read.
Others are slow, readable, narrate stories about Schrödingers cat, about evaluation of speed of light, about the end of Finnegans Wake.
„Night Now“ is the calling for a hyper present tense, a home coming, a self encounter, a self extinction.
NIGHT NOW is part of the aleatory film project THE ELECTRIC PARADISE
