A small fragment from William Kentrige’s ‘Journey to the moon’. He uses various cinematic techniques combined together in this film such as animation, time-lapse, stop-motion photography, dissolves, motion reversals. That combination made the film ‘functioned as a kind of sketch-book’.
Kentrige was influenced by Russian avant-garde cinema which at the early times of 1930’s has become a tool of propaganda. It was a revolutionary visual language focused on every day life and technological progress using montages and different camera angles to celebrate a new machine age.
