Peter Tscherkassky: I see my work as highly self-referential in cinema

The famous Austrian Filmmaker Peter Tscherkassky said
I see my work as highly self-referential in cinema and I believe that
my films are more entertainment.
He made the remarks in the virtual specialized meeting “38-20” at the
38th Tehran International Short Film Festival currently underway in
“The engaging atmosphere that I try to incorporate into my films is
that I think this is a more inclusive and broader cinematic collection
than a film that only cinematic analogs can create such energy,” he
Commenting on his last film, he added that;” I started making films
and my interest in filmmaking dates back to my childhood, and it was
at the age of 17 that I decided to make my first film, after which it
took me four years to buy a camera.”
He continued: “I lived in Berlin for five years and got acquainted
with the history of avant-garde cinema, and then I decided to go to
another medium. Continuing my activity, I went to Fan Footage. A
footage fan is an old series of footage that I make and decide how to
use. When I decide to work with some of these images, I look at the
images. I remember these footnotes and later they work as my
vocabulary and I can use some of these forms.”
The filmmaker continued: “I try to write the story of each of the
frames and decide which form I can use to write the story. In fact,
the common denominator of all my films is that they all disappear with
the disappearance of the camera and analog cinema and its replacement
with digital cameras and cinema, and the reason I work with forms by
the hand is because the digital medium of filmmaking is able to produce
them.  It is not and a different effect is created.”
Noting that he has never had a problem with copyright, he continued:
“For many years, fan footage has been bought and sold at a small
price and many changes have been made so that there is no copyright
the issue in this area.”
The Austrian filmmaker continued: “I see my work as a highly
self-referential one in cinema, and I believe that my films are more
entertaining to clear the mind of the audience of their worries.”
“The engaging atmosphere that I try to incorporate into my films. I
think this is an all-encompassing and wider range of cinema than a
film that only cinematic analogs can create such energy. In general, I
consider myself one of the narrative filmmakers. I consider my films
to contain short stories that reach their peak,” he added.
He said: “One of the important experiences of cinema is the
materiality of cinema, and I mean this materiality is to place a film
strip in front of the light and screen so that people can see that
“When we see a movie theater where a group of people agrees on one
thing and are in a certain place and everyone sits in the same
direction and watches a movie, this series creates a unique experience
and for those who  They look at the screens, it makes them think
differently about the creatures, and I have always tried to engage the
audience in my films,” he added.
