Guitar #1711 is a very subtle film. The story drifts along with an odd, dreamy grace. Virtually the entire soundtrack consists of Julian’s stunning fretwork and Otto’s workshop noises. These dual atmospherics, seemingly at odds with each other, allow viewers to intuitively grasp the relationship between these two supremely talented men. Guitar #1711 is a 23-minute examination of a genius craftsman making an instrument for a genius musician.
