CTRL ALT ESCape from Rotterdam - WORM collective
Prod/Act/Cam: Esther Urlus
59 min, Super8&16mm & DV, 2009-2011
WORM's first feature-length movie on Super-8. With its main constituent and inspiration being a few thousand litres of freshly boiled fake blood, CTRL ALT ESCape was lovingly formed from an Autumn 2009 Filmwerkplaats workshop on the making of budget DIY feature films.
The first image in Hometown shows a kind of film set being demolished. Rather than being built, started off, here something is being taken down, ended. This is a good example of the unusual approach that will characterise the film. The search for ‘traces and figures of heroism’ and an ‘imaginary fatherland’ is not a simple adding up of separate parts. Rather, it is the search itself that is central - the straying, sensing and freely associating - more than attaining a sharp, clearly defined result.
A prominent role in this process is reserved for ‘good old’ 16mm black-and-white stock.
