A line (a road) filmed through the windshield of a moving car continues in the rearview mirror. The movement of approaching and departing is visible, interrupted only by the moving car. The other interruption on the space-time line is the same size as the car. The cinema as car, the car as seam in time (curvature between future and past), the cinema as interruption of normal time.
