In 1966 Argentinian author, critic and psycho-analyst Oscar Masotta organised three happenings (or anti-happenings). These happenings still surprise us today because of their handling of audience, events, signs, narratives and haunting. We feel contemporary to this peculiar handling or perhaps not quite yet. El helicóptero is the first chapter of a larger film titled Segunda Vez which dwells on the idea of ‘happening again’, not only with respect to re-enactment, but even more so in the context of fantastic literature, visionary fiction and alternative history. The third film will be shot during Playground at the University of Leuven.
