"L´Arrivée" -after "Motion picture"- is my second homage to the Lumière brothers. First you see the arrival of the film itself, which shows the arrival of a train at a station. But that train collides with a second train, causing a violent crash, which leads us to an unexpected third arrival, the arrival of a beautiful woman, the happy ending. Reduced to two minutes "´L´Arrivée" tries to give a brief, but exact summary of what cinematography (after this arrival with the Lumière train) has made into an enduring presence of our visual environment: violence, emotions. Or, as an anonymous American housewife (cited by T.W. Adorno) used to describe Hollywood´s version of life: "Getting into trouble and out of it again".

CCCB web:
"L'Arrivée" es el segundo homenaje de Tscherkassky a los hermanos Lumiére. En primer lugar, se ve la llegada del propio film, que a su vez muestra la llegada de un tren a la estación. No obstante, este tren choca con otro tren y provoca un violento accidente, que nos guía hasta una tercera llegada, la llegada de una bella mujer, el final feliz.
