The Fifth Wall (2017)

Austrian premier : June 1st @ VIS Filmfestival, Vienna (Gartenbaukino)
World premier : October 6th @ Festival du nouveau cinéma / FNC , Montreal

In the Fifth Wall, kutin|kindlinger replace the cinema-screen through a bulletproof glass pane (originally measured 3x2m).  They use extreme physical forces against this wall-of-glass and let us see and listen to them. Impacts that create cracks, cuts, splinters and emissions of sonic through the material.
As an object it represents the omnipresent displays of our time; this wall made of glass  is put between the audience and the camera – it becomes a cinematic metaphor for a society intrinsically linked to the screen. In times of fragmentation and acceleration, side products of the so called digital revolution, we live more and more through abstraction.

A fifth wall has risen and can no longer be ignored.
