"The strength of a single man who insists on being free is greater than that of a multitude of silent slaves." "DIY" consists of two image sequences presented simultaneously, contrasting in form, colour, material, rhythm, camera movement and content. One frame shows a home movie which has been shot with a classic wind-up camera. The other is a black and white film existing of quiet shots of an anonymous urban landscape. Because of the split screen image, "DIY" invites every viewer to build his own film. The viewer has an active role which affects his involvement with the subject matter.
