Our Daily Bread #4

Trees and buildings: the end of the 20th century in Ferrara and Straub-Huillet
Neil Bahadur

Two films from the conclusion of the 20th Century. A city and a tree.  Day and Night. Color and black & white.  From right to left and from left to right. The future and the past.


New Rose Hotel (Abel Ferrara, 1998)
Sicilia! (Daniele Huillet & Jean-Marie Straub, 1999)

Our Daily Bread is a column on not necessarily beautiful images, nor similar images, but images that when brought together interact in meaningful ways.
