Director, Script: Peter Kubelka


In Adebar, only certain shot lenghts are used and the image material in the film is combined according
to certain rules. For instance, there is a consistent alternation between positive and negative.
The film´s images are extremely high contrast black-and-white shots of dancing figures; the images
are stripped down to their black-and-white essentials so that they can be used in an almost
terrifyingly precise construct of image, motion, and repeated sound (Fred Camper)
