close by. Georges Franju and the moving frame

In the films of Georges Franju the irreal lies right next to reality. It takes just a mere pan of the camera to move from the familiar to the horrible. The simplest cinematic device of the movable camera produces the most disturbing effects. 
A study in the uncanny that is always already there, just beyond the border of the image.

for Nicole Reinhard, inspired by the film retrospective „Georges Franju – Poesie der Angst“ at the Filmpodium Zurich we curated together.
