If someone told you that you are watching Walt Disney's cartoon "Dumbo," you would doubt the mind of your interlocutor. But that's the way it is. The British sculptor and photographer Jason Shulman has photographed whole films with long-term exposure, so that the countless individual images that make up the film, in a single shot superimposed. And what emerged from "Dumbo", has an amazing coherence: A dream of pink elephants is the happy turning point in the fate of the title hero in the 1941 produced production. The true-hearted Dumbo, who is constantly ridiculed and pissed off by his huge ears, can fly to the dream and steal the show in the circus.
