Mosaic in Confidence
Kubelka´s motives for making the film lie in his belief that commercial films do not fully exploit cinematic possibilities. He declares that the place of the plot and its ostensibly disparate scenes in the screen, and the time shall be any time at which the film is shown.
Today, Mosaic in Confidence is deemed the first Austrian avant-garde film. It is composed in a way that emphasizes the importance of its basic parts, the individual shots. The method of their combination does not obey any standardized, conventional pattern, but instead follows its own rules as conceived by the artist, referring reflexively to the construction of the film as a whole. It seemingly aspires to redefine the relationship of its component parts to the whole. The leitmotif: condensation. Mosaic in Confidence leads us directly to the portal of Adebar, the first, as Kubelka calls it, "metric" film, and the first truly structural film.
