Short Film: VACUUM, 5min, Switzerland, Dance

Vlcsnap 2016 10 26 16h51m43s966Based on the eponymous dance piece, Vacuum generates impossible images and fantastic paintings. An interplay of bodies appearing and disappearing between black holes and dazzling lights. This duo, third part in an ongoing series called Dispositifs (stage devices) in convergence with visual arts, explores further the visual perception of movement. The result is lyrical and inspiring, as it moves forward through the history of art, from Renaissance paintings to photographic development.

Even though I was not able to attend the festival, I appreciated how clear the communication was and how respectful they were with the films and filmmakers. In addition, I enjoyed watching the audience’s feedback video on my film and it made me feel like my art is being appreciated and I should keep making films. Thank you!
