The cooperation between the Crossing Europe Film Festival Linz with Linz 2009 – European Capital of Culture has made possible a new trailer production for 2007. The commission was awarded to the Linz based photographer, animation and video filmmaker Karo Szmit. Szmit‘s animation film intercut starts with a bird‘s-eye view of the airport. Later the outward view to the sea is contrasted with the inward view to monitors displaying different images. In the end the camera glides into a movement reflecting the beginning across an extension cord with multiple sockets lying on the floor with various electrical cords attached. Electrical power network and the international flight route network now seem to be connected in a mysterious, fractal way. (mz)
