The Call of the Klondike

Call of the Klondike is a film made at the Royal College of Art in 2011 and features musicians borrowed from the nearby Royal College of Music. The actors in the film were asked to mime to a film and there is a slippage between their mime and the soundtrack itself which forms a kind of distancing device for the audience. This technique is influenced by Brecht’s (making strange effect) or Verfremdungseffeckt.
