Simply that because it's made entirely of black and clear frames and
sound (white noise) and silence in equal measure, anyone could
reconstruct the film from its score.

Some bibliographical references: Kubelka, Peter: The Theory of
Metrical Film, 139-159 in:
Sitney, P. Adams (ed): 1978, The Avant-Garde Film: A Reader of Theory
and Criticism, New York: Film Culture/New York University Press.

Mekas, Jonas: 1967, Interview with Peter Kubelka, Film Culture Summer,
issue 44, New York: Anthology Film Archives, 43-47, reprinted in:

Gidal, Peter (ed) 1978: Structural Film Anthology, London: BFI
