The Cutter   1880

Release date: Fri 22 Oct 2010
Running time:30 (0h30’)
Age restriction:

The parallel worlds of fantasy and reality collide and collude in this beautifully crafted homage to filmmaking, particularly to the skill of the celluloid editor, the careful, controlled cutter of film.
The editor creates and animates her perfect being, and they gaze at one another through the lens. So real is this image that the editor can no longer distinguish between the fantasy and the fiction. But, in the real world, the object of her desire too is a ‘cutter’, a woman who mutilates her body with a blade, the lover she cannot save.
A tale of obsession, possession, the loss of control, and perhaps the desire to make things better...
Oldfield and Reinecke’s very personal work, in which they both perform and film each other, is the first chapter of a longer trilogy.

Directed by: Jacque Oldfield, Adelheid Reinecke
