KURT KREN: STRUCTURAL FILMS

"Kurt Kren´s achievements with regard to the montage of short cuts in his early works was many years ahead of the rest of the (film)world, in both form and content. Kurt Kren was a pioneere: an avantgardist in the classic and best sense of the word. A filmmaker who knows how to think in images like few others in this trade, and who realized these images in films that are among the "most beautiful" and - if it's important - "most important" in cinematic history." 

– Peter Tscherkassky
