Documentary film Morocco 2013

Located in the Moroccan desert, the Atlas Film Studios have been the set for countless blockbusters in the last decades. Many of the large film sets that range from Egyptian temples to Mekka, Afghanistan war zones and American gas stations, remain to decay in the landscape as displaced derelicts. The film »Atlas Cinema« is a filmic archeology about this surreal location, tracing a number of films with the exact same position, perspective, camera movement and lenses. Just the sets are run down and without any actors, the sound layer of the original pictures remains, with the deserted images exactly matched.
