Nature Cut is a conceptual film history that covers the years 1950 to 1975. – Made in Berlin 2011-2015.
Each Nature Cut follows the same principle: Removal of all scenes showing people (unless they are 'reproduced' on another media like papers or TV-sets) reduces each film from the original length, usually 90 minutes, to between roughly 2 and 7 minutes. Films of that era had a comparatively slow tempo. The Nature Cut reduction accelerates these films to a rhythm in keeping with current times and youth.I have made around 80 Nature Cuts so far.
The video titles refer to the chronological order in which I made the videos, and they provide information about the film's country of origin and year of production, such as FILM 1 GB 1975 or FILM 31 USA 1950.
