Austrian filmmaker Johann Lurf has created a film compiled of the night sky as seen in films throughout the history of cinema, a conceptual work where cinematic interpretations of the night sky past and present are the stars of the show.

Inspired by Astrolabe by Muhammad ibn Ahmad Al-Battuti Maghreb 1726-1727 which represents the celestial sphere in a flat projection. The artwork is on display in the Cosmography Gallery. The film ★ invites viewers to enjoy stargazing in this conceptual work of cinematic interpretations of the night sky.

يأخذ هذا الفيلم الروائي الطويل للنمساوي يوهان لورف المشاهد في رحلة بين النجوم عبر مقاطع من أفلام تظهر السماء بصورها المختلفة.

هذا الفيلم مستوحى من إسطرلاب محمد بن أحمد البطوطي، المغرب، 1726-1727 الذي يمثل الكرة السماوية بشكل مسطح، والمعروض في قاعة علم أوصاف الكون في المتحف.

Ce premier long métrage du structuraliste autrichien Johann Lurf est à la fois un voyage à travers l'histoire du cinéma et un travail conceptuel où les interprétations cinématographiques du passé et du présent sont les vedettes du spectacle.

Inspiré par l’Astrolabe de Muhammad ibn Ahmad Al-Battuti, Maroc, 1726-1727 qui représente la sphère céleste en projection plane, exposé dans la galerie Cosmographie. ★ invite le spectateur à une plongée contemplative de cette œuvre conceptuelle d'interprétation du ciel nocturne.
