feature film

1997

A willfully obscure and visceral thriller in which time and character are unsettlingly flexible and the rules by which viewers might be expected to deduce the plot lines are constantly altered.

Despite the film's beautifully rich and jewel-like colours, the real atmosphere comes from the edges of the image, the deep shadows and obscured places, the events we don't quite see. Instead of being shown every detail we are invited to contribute information of our own. As soon as this happens we weave parts of ourselves into the film and a very personal connection is made.
