Indefinite Pitch is a short film consisting entirely of still, black-and-white images. Made for the Berlinale, Kienitz Wilkins frames the narration as though he were pitching a film set in Berlin. Soon, he reveals that he means Berlin, New Hampshire (budgets being what they are), and that the photographs are of the Androscoggin River. Needless to say, by this point not everything is as it seems. Kienitz Wilkins’ narration is a brilliant fabric of puns and misdirections, repetitions and double-backs.
