From his work in the fiction mode to documentary to installation, German filmmaker Harun Farocki has consistently explored ideas of language, ideology, perception, and contemporary audio-visual culture. In An Image (Ein Bild), he chronicles the process of shooting a Playboy centerfold photo. Shot in four days at Playboy's photography studio in Munich, the film begins with the building of the set and follows through to the dismantling of the set at the end of the job. Farocki includes all phases of the photo shoot and shows the participation of the many people involved in making one photo. In so doing, he effectively strips the glamour and allure from the subject by focusing on the labor and orchestration behind it. "A materialist documentary in the best sense of the world" (Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader). In German with English subtitles.System Requirements:Running Time 25 Mins.Format: DVD MOVIE
Editor's Note
This stimulating 1984 film from experimental German filmmaker Harun Farocki follows a Playboy Magazine centerfold photo shoot in Munich over a period of four days, from set construction to cleanup. Despite the naturally erotic nature of the photographs, Farocki chooses to focus on the behind-the-scenes work that goes into creating images of beauty, glamour, and sex.
