NO MORE HEROES

With No More Heroes, Sorenson makes a comment on Hollywood’s obsession with heroic figures by re-editing mainstream movies to cut out every frame in which the main character was seen or heard. On viewing the remaining footage that Sorenson put back together, the supporting characters are now perceived as main protagonists and a new story is imagined from the patched up dialogues. What were once canonical storylined feature shows now becomes a series of experimental short film.
