Is it possible to create a cinema stripped down to only the movement that eludes it? To attempt a Beckett-style cinema that claims not to reproduce reality, but to “bore one hole after another in it, until what lurks behind it—be it something or nothing—begins to seep through.” Would this cinema project onto the screen the basic mechanics of the spectator’s phantasy? Could this technique reconstruct a secret archive, a memory of repression, a repression of a reality the camera originally prohibited? To offer a radiographic analysis of what is under the skin of the image, an x-ray of motion pictures.
