Realms of the Fantastic
11 minutes, color, age range: 14 - adult, #572
This short film about modern fantastic art is not meant to be a didactic or a comprehensive survey. It shows pictures by Arnold Böcklin, Max Klinger, James Ensor, Max Beckmann, Paul Klee, Salvador Dali, Francis Bacon, Paul Delvaux, Yves Tanguy, René Magritte, Konrad Klapheck, and others, and these are set against very personal revelations or fantastic lyrics by the artists themselves. This text collage is preceded by provocative statements about the relationship between art and reality ('Art is what lies beyond reality. But what is reality?') and these are accompanied by unrealistic shots of ordinary, everyday things.
Director: Wilhelm Gareis
Original music: H Heindel
