Vargtimmen – After a Scene by Ingmar Bergmann, 2010, 6:20 (1:00) min., sound, b/w [VIDEONALE.13]

Courtesy Sixpackfilm

Shot by shot, Georg Tiller and his camera man Claudio Pfeiffer have reconstructed the dramatic child murder scene from Ingmar Bergmann’s 1968 “Vargstimmen” (“The Hour of the Wolf”). In black and white, the viewer sees the sea and its sharp cliffs, the horizon and the soft, rippling surface of the deep waters. The camera’s motion and framing reference and exactly mimic those of its famous predecessor, the essential difference being that no actors are to be seen. The shots are accompanied by the original soundtrack by Lars Johan Werle. The work makes the viewer aware of the film’s projection screen, its film noir stylings and the moment of reception. Although the camera movement and the music provide a certain narration, the absence of actors and language opens up the meaning. Thanks to this reconstruction, the stylistic elements, representation and the context of the observer – their observations and experiences – represent not only formative elements of the film, but also offer new possibilities of interpretation.
