- Program Description
In this black-and-white film, a young boy riding in the back of a car appears to fall into a dream state in which he is surrounded by older women and dancing showgirls. A magician appears, emphasizing the mysterious and surreal quality of the images. At one point the car floats in the air like a balloon, as people on the ground try to pull it down with ropes. A house is shown being demolished. As the images are repeated in new orders and with slight variation, they are recontextualized so that the narrative shifts continually.
