In 2012 Burger Collection commissioned a presentation of the film by Vittorio Santoro entitled A Large Sheet of Glass Dropped from Shoulder Height (2012) in the form of a montage consisting of source material, stills, production shots, quotes from the artist about the film as well as an introductory note. Hannah Harper, the assistant Director on the film, was invited to conceive and realize the presentation together with Torrent editors Daniel Kurjakovic and Linda Jensen.

This was to foreshadow his contribution in Torrent No. 1 which you can download here.
