Elephant

"When he woke up, the elephant was still there. Elephant is the shortest possible film. Elephant consists of a single frame, with a duration of 1/60 of a second (16.7 milliseconds). Elephant is the demonstration of the essential difference between photography and film, of the radical difference between frame and photograph: film is not movement (it is impossible to reproduce movement with a single frame), but visual time. Elephant imposes its (meagre) temporality, both showing and concealing. Elephant is political cinema, a denunciation of the brutality of a fascist state (illegalisation of political parties, imprisonment of journalists) whose obviousness to want to deny the whole world, a denunciation of the censorship and manipulation of the media that only show what the masters of the world allow them to show."
