Pass on the link. Watch it again. And then start reading. I’ve been a fan of David’s films since back when I wasn’t sure if they were good or not… the xyz rgb series. They were such a driven exploration of… yeah, of what? …that I didn’t mind them not being successful films. That ambiguity has long since been replaced by pure admiration… for his films and for his humor. I don’t want to have his baby, but I sure do want to see more of his work! And I’m pleased beyond measure that the Berlinale jurors had the courage to honor “Please say something”.
That ‘what‘ that I think he was exploring has a lot to do with cg materiality, btw. Things like medial transmission and compression artifacts. Go David, go!
