Filmmontage III
DE 1965

Peter Roehr, sadly deceased at a very young age, worked almost exclusively with series, on paper as well as in film. For Filmmontage III he – like most of the German found-footage filmmakers who were to follow – used American source material, in this case adverts featuring idealized takes on feminine beauty, minute details of which he clipped and collaged so as to subvert them.
