"How do you draw the line between art and terror?"

That's the tagline in the new trailer for Anders Ronnow Klarlund's "The Secret Society of Fine Arts," an upcoming feature about a violent secret society whose "goal is to set beauty free." The Danish director, who gained international acclaim with 2004's marionette marvel "Strings," looks like he's challenging audiences with this gorgeous, provocative and slightly pretentious movie.

Created through manipulating 3-D still photographs, the film is inspired by Chris Marker's 1962 "La Jetee."  Just a few weeks ago, the New York Times' AO Scott wrote about the influence of the short film about memory and time travel on such films as "The Terminator," "Back to the Future," "Primer," the most recent "Star Trek" movie, and "Looper."  Film and time travel suit each other, he writes:

"The camera is itself a time machine, drawing us simultaneously forward and backward, in the film’s words 'calling past and future to the rescue of the present.'" 

Trailers for the 1962 classic and Klarlund's "The Secret Society of Fine Arts" are posted below.
