Goldframe (1969)

Synopsis

 

Jason Goldframe, film producer, is the best anywhere and always the first! Above all, he wants to be the first to produce a feature that has never been realised before: a 270mm film. Driven by his obsession to perform, he wants to outdo even his own shadow. One evening he succeeds ...

 

“'Goldframe' meant a first experiment that distanced itself from the tight and pure contouring of the figures. The spontaneous, sketchy outline of the film's only figure, Mr. Jason Goldframe, went in perfect symbiosis with the beautiful sets of Paul Van Gysegem. ”
