Indefinite Pitch James N. Kienitz Wilkins

Film index A to Z

“I have never been to Berlin.” Like a great novel or a film noir narration, this is the intriguing opening to Indefinite Pitch. A dense yet playful exploration of the many meanings of the word “pitch,” this new short film by James N. Kienitz Wilkins sets its brilliant monologue to stark black-and-white photographs shot in and around an industrial city. The narration constantly folds in on itself through dazzling associations of ideas. From the fate of the town of Berlin, New Hampshire, the film world in the Amazon age, and a vanished TV series from the 1920s, from the paper industry, urban violence and racism to the very idea of filmic memory. Maybe, in the end, this pitch is about us.
