1996 [colour, stereo, 4 min. 30 sec.]

Script, performance, director: Istvan Kantor. Produced at PRIM, Montreal.

In 1995 Istvan Kantor was guest participant of a Joris Ivens seminar in Amsterdam, organized by MonteVideo TBA. A group exhibition, dedicated to the revolutionary Dutch filmmaker, followed the seminar. Being confronted by Ivens' politically engaged work, Kantor has chosen to confront Ivens' communist ideals in relation to his own neoist philosophy.
