This short is called 'The Derby', but the horse-racing is of minimal
importance here. Rather than adopt a distant, god's eye view, the camera
takes its place with the crowd, another observer. Indeed the crowd itself
is more interesting than the sport, as we watch a policeman chat with an
hand, and wonder what they're talking about, as well as the thousands of
other conversations the deafmute camera cannot overhear.
This sense of actual disparity between camera and audience is literalised
when the race ends and the huge crowd swarms the turf, taking over the
nominal stage, becoming the observed rather than mere observers, actors at
national event, while the camera stays where it is, hapless, passive.
It would be tempting to see this as a metaphor for the cinema itself, the
way its controlling events only goes so far as an audience's
of them; much to the discomfort of some producers and directors, audiences
won't just sit there and take whatever's dished out to them, but will make
it their own.
