PLENTY 2: Ägypten

Ägypten
Kathrin Resetarits, Austria, 1997, 16mm, b/w, sound, 10 minutes


Ägypten takes viewers on a journey into the silent world of sign language, exploring visual communication between people of all ages. Children recount movie scenes and an expedition to the pyramids, a woman signs a traditional Viennese ballad and a group of pensioners socialise. The film uses the power of cinema to explore this theme with humour and compassion.

 


The screening series PLENTY proposes a new way of looking at artists’ films by showing only a single work, regardless of its duration. Each film is given the freedom to unfold on its own terms, and the viewer is given the time and space to consider it.
