35 mm CinemaScope 1:2.35
International Film Festival Rotterdam
In a cinema the screen needs to become invisible in order to serve as a window to the world. In Viktoria Schmid’s series A proposal to project, the screen is allowed to fulfill a different purpose. It is the main protagonist. The screen in Scope-format is set up at the Curonian Split’s seashore, in Lithuania, in a landscape corresponding with the qualities of the screen’s wide-screen-format. The film shows the screen for the duration of one day: The sun and trees perform a subtle interplay of light and shadow while the sea and wind create the surround sound of the 35 mm film.
