Watch this video in 2 speeds:
- 1): on YouTube: the way things go, 7.25 min. This version is 4x faster than the Original and is set to the tune of the William Tell Overture;
- 2): Same video in normal time and with the real material noises, on vimeo: Der Lauf der Dinge (1987), 29,45 min. The film is nearly 29 minutes, 45 seconds long, but some of that is waiting for something to burn, or slowly slide down a ramp.
Find on en.Wikipedia The Way Things Go (in german Der Lauf der Dinge): (it) is a 1987 art film by the Swiss artist duo Peter Fischli and David Weiss.
