Black Box Shorts 4: Forms of Experience

  • 75 mins

Zero Irony, A Question Lingers, Le songe du retour, E# - From a Glacial Tune, MADE OF AIR, Eyrie, Mountain Trip, Peacock

Patterns, repetitions, distortions, and reflections: a kaleidoscope of perceptual stimulation.

How does form inflect experience and how can experience be translated through form? The eight films featured here revolve around questions of perception and the capacity of film to capture and elicit elusive states beyond or between the lines of linguistic description. Oscillating between the contemplative and the overwhelming, between forms of seeing and forms of feeling, these films transport us from escalator rides to mountain trips, and from radio prayer requests to near-death experience.
