As I was going over the material I was buying, fiction films and documentaries, both in Super 8 and in 16 mm, I began to select the images based on a single theme - actors who were always facing backwards to the camera. Then I edited that footage without the slightest narrative development. The only explanation I can find for my decision to recount these specific moments is the secret and transcendental power with which
they are embedded, their violent magnetism. Only in the final sequence did I edited the images in accordance with associative logic. After the gunshot aimed at the audience, the dead body we see on the screen is, in fact, that of the public, whose situation throughout the film was, at all times, troubled by a sense of danger.
