Get Into the Car / Get Out of the Car

Pirate Cinema Berlin, 2017-2019, 25 min.

“Get in the Car / Get out of the Car” is a semi-automatic edit of about 300 film clips in which someone either says “Get in the car” or “Get out of the car”, including a few slight variations. The result, spanning almost 100 years of moving images, is an exhilarating speed run through the history of film that distills, around the object of the car, some of the most canonical constellations of cinema.
