Hi Amanda, Obsession (1981-1985) by Melbourne filmmaker John Cumming is a 24' experimental short that fits your request. It uses automobile fixation as pretext and from the middle onwards the film builds up to the final scene which is a car -crash. In its time the film was screened at Oberhausen and I think also Clermont Ferrand. It's part of Cumming's trilogy "Obsession, Recognition, Sabotage". If you wrote to him I believe he would help you out with a copy. Let me know (off list) if you need his contact details. All best, VB ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Vassily Bourikas THESSALONIKI INTERNATIONAL FILM FESTIVAL, 3-12 December 2010 9 Alexandras Avenue.

I'm shooting a new film next month... 35mm with a car crash... and while my storyboards and conceptual theories (as well as crazy technical logistics) are mostly all worked out by now, I'd still like to make sure that I have a strong understanding of the historical trajectory of these sorts of films... the greater context and all that. I'm curious about other experimental films that have involved car crashes. I can't think of any off the top of my head, but I'm sure there must be plenty out there... During my research, I've found lots and lots of crashes in mainstream movies, music videos, and actual crashes caught on video phones on youtube... but nothing yet in the experimental context. I'm curious to see what else is out there before I go to camera. Thanks so much in advance, and i hope everyone had a happy solstmas, and is enjoying the winter! amanda _______________________________________________ FrameWorks mailing list email suppressed
