3 February - 22 January 2018: 71 Fragments of a Chronology of Chance


71 Fragments of a Chronology of Chance
Michael Haneke
1994 | 95 min | Colour | Digital

Haneke's articulate critique of the isolating effects of western society, the media and television in particular, is composed of an intricate series of unrelated scenes, culminating in an apparently motiveless act of violence. Perfectly paced and executed, Haneke's skilful weaving of these tableaux into a coherent and compelling whole is mesmerising and masterfully composed.

Part of the Glaciation Trilogy, screening as part of our Michael Haneke retrospective
