Search for the Light

Istvan Kantor

2008, 06:45 minutes, colour, English


Search for the Light is a video song, somewhat similar to Revolutionary Song, that explores Istvan Kantor's childhood memories. It tells about the author's early interest in film and the magical experience of being absorbed in a movie in the holy church of filmtheaters. The refrain of the song sums up Kantor's life long ars poetica: "Search for the light, search for motion, search for new sounds, search for revolution!"
