B-ROLL with Andre (2015)

2015 | USA | James N. Kienitz Wilkins | ★★★★

The concluding part of his 'Andre' Trilogy, artist and film-maker James N. Kienitz Wilkins's stimulatingly intriguing B-ROLL with Andre is a visually undistinguished but idea-packed short film about movies, technology, and social identity.


"A disembodied, anonymous character reflects on the titular Andre, a fellow prisoner whose obsessions with mainstream cinema and video technologies serve as oblique clues to how he escaped. Andre’s aspirations to achieve absolute fidelity in image-making intersect with questions about representation, identity, and personal ethics." Vdrome
