Once again, the train. It is on it that Peter Tscherkassky takes us back to the early days of film. The title, “Train Again”, invites us to see once and again, allowing us to see other things, or the same ones as different. Horses that run, images that gallop, indomitable. In between the rails, we screen a myriad of fictions in black-and-white, anticipating the accident. Gears and carriages moving full steam ahead, like piano keys in motion; crossing, overlapping, and merging into each other. Ghost-faces, startled gazes. Workers leaving the factory, taking us to the first public film screening. “Western”, abstraction, action, fantasy, everything flows underneath the gaze. Everything is movement. Vertigo. Tscherkassky, an Austrian filmmaker who is one of the quintessential names of experimental cinema, has had a recurring presence at Curtas, screening several of his movies. In 2006, he presented at Solar fragments of his work on film, which he uses to cross the borders between real and imaginary, figurative and abstract, light and shadow, flying over different eras, in fragmented and elusive images, which are just like memories.
