IN KINO VERITAS
The collage artist Lewis Klahr has long been one of the American experimental film scene’s most interesting directors. Clearly having things in common with Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, he reforms the sixties’ pop cultural picture bank to melancholic miniature where Marvel heroes from the society of Mad Men meet Greek tragedy. Sixty Six, which was unanimously praised at the premiere at MoMa in New York, is organized in twelve chapters. Sixty Six is a milestone achievement, the culmination of Klahr’s decades-long work in collage filmmaking. The film is a hypnotic dream of 1960 and 1970s Pop.
