Film screening. The Pettifogger. 2011. USA. Directed by Lewis Klahr. 65 min.


A story of a swindler obsessed with playing cards for money takes place in America of the early 1960s. Klar rhymes a chaotic use of images in the media epoch with a cunning cardsharping. The collage of comic books, pictures, photographs and adverts puts the viewer in an endless play of association which aims at a new form of illustrating digital processes.

Screened at the International Film Festival Rotterdam in 2012.

The Russian Premier.

In the framework of the Deconstruction of Сinematic Realities Film Program.  

GARAGE SCREEN is dedicated to exploring all forms of 20th and 21st century moving image work as a core component of contemporary culture. It explores and reflects key issues addressed by artists and filmmakers, tracks the evolution of the medium and considers its role at the crossroads of fine art, popular culture, cinema, media and documentary practices.
GARAGE SCREEN is developed by Garage Center for Contemporary Culture’s film program as part of its Educational Program. Screenings and related events tackle the theoretical and practical issues raised by cinema.
