Cinema Verité

When a friend made the mistake of leaving his camera in my possession and forgetting to ask for its return I quickly went to work making a movie. My original plan was for something much longer but I couldn’t stop laughing long enough to film more than this brief scene which is an homage to a famous film and a metaphor for life in an era of globalization.

Watch it:



As you movie buffs have guessed the scene was from the blooper reel of the classic film Casablanca starring Humphrey Boggart and Ingrid Bergman. Snoopy takes the place of Bergman while the stuffed dog, which in my childhood I referred to as “Puppy”, takes the place of Boggart who is being interrogated. This scene was placed in the blooper reel because one of the key grips, represented by the tire of my DX 4000 Panasonic, was accidently in-frame and Bergman couldn’t stop laughing for some reason; there’s also no character named “Bill” in Casablanca.


Speak, mortal, if you dare...
