In “Displacing Motion” the whole film consists of a tracking shot along a street that is distinguished by nothing other than being unremarkable. A plastic bottle is lying on the street. Over time, cars pass across the scene driving over the bottle in the process. A suspense grows. The very act of staging is comically staged, reducing the style of film, motion, tracking shot and narration to absurdity. The film ends in a radical negation of the narrative. The bottle is driven out of the picture and the camera continues filming into the void. Not only the protagonist is out of view, but the whole cast seems to disappear. All that remains is film in itself.
