A love letter to the silent films of the early masters – Lang, Murnau, Dreyer, Méliès et al. Using contemporary effects to create stunning expressionistic visuals helps fully realise this utterly fantastic concept. A passion for the aforementioned directors and era is useful in appreciating the feel of the movie, but by no means a prerequisite. You can pause this film at any moment and get a wonderful image, so taking shots for this 1fps was a bit like shooting the proverbial fish in a barrel. This selection is just a small sample of the beautiful imagery found in La Antena.
