What's Wrong with This Picture 1

Rental Format(s): 16mm film

"The first portion of this film is an old instructional film about being a 'good citizen,' presented intact; the second section is a color reconstruction of this black and white film by Land. The original film abounds in absurdities in both image and sound; [Land's] 'copy' is even more bizarre. Both are also extremely funny, and the humor is not totally without meaning: it comes out of the way that each line of dialog, each direction given, implies a situation or character so absurdly plodding as to be almost inconceivable. In [Land's] version he creates an additional paradox - one of depth - by matting out certain parts of the frame." - Fred Camper

Note: Parts 1 and 2 can each be rented separately for $20.
