Fleckenstein Video Gallery

Germany, 1996, by Christoph Girardet, 9:30 min.

In Release, a few seconds of terror from the original 1933 King Kong are extended out over nine and a half minutes. Restrained by her arms, the computer-syncopated actress Fay Wray huffs, puffs, writhes, barks like a terrified dog, fades into exhaustion, wakes up to let out the famous screeching scream, and starts up all over again. A strange, rhythmic sound like buzzing hornets at high volume accompanies this bizarre ballet, which never once shows the giant gorilla.
