The title refers to both the nature of advertising films and early cinema, the “cinema of attractions”.The initial visual contact juxtaposes the two genres through editing, and together with avant-garde film they represent the basic troika for 11 chapters in which the master of found footage Peter Tscherkassky examines the varying relationships between these three worlds of moving images. “Coming Attractions” is a playful, lighthearted, and amusing look at cinematic history through the rearview mirror.
