Synopsis

Four days spent in a studio working on a centerfold photo for Playboy magazine provided the subject matter for this film. The magazine itself deals with culture, cars, a certain lifestyle. Maybe all those trappings are only there to cover up the naked woman. Maybe it’s like with a paper-doll. The naked woman in the middle is a sun around which a system revolves: of culture, of business, of living! One can well imagine that the people creating such a picture, the gravity of which is supposed to hold all that, perform their task with as much care, seriousness, a responsibility as if they were splitting uranium.

Screening is combined with the films “The Creators of Shopping Worlds”, “An Image”.
