tx-reverse

Virgil Widrich, Martin Reinhart | Austria | 2019

What is behind the cinema screen? What if the forces of unlimited imagination penetrate through the canvas into our reality? What if the auditorium dissolves and with it the familiar laws of cinema itself? In a way never before seen, tx-reverse shows this collision of reality and cinema and draws its viewers into a vortex in which the familiar order of space and time seems to be suspended.
