One-hundred years after Chaplin’s slapstick social drama The Kid, Norbert Pfaffenbichler situates his free adaptation of the silent movie in a dystopic underworld in which the lumpen proletariat vegetate as ugly masked figures. In a sensuous staging of the abject, 2551.01 tells a story of violence that celebrates not only the suppressed and excluded, but also cinema’s political potential.
