Negative History of Hungarian Cinema
Reconstructions of unrealized Hungarian films.
Recycling tries to find a solution to the problems caused by the extreme amount of rubbish flooding our world. We follow the way of the consumer products from the origins through the using, until the destruction or storing of the non-recyclable ones. Recycling represents the industrial production as a huge organism in continuous circulation. We show how we can be in connection through the production and the consumption without noticing each other. The way of the consumer goods, produced in shocking quantity from day to day, come to light through expressive pictures and industrial poetry.
