An animated reflection on mortality, “CEMETERY SONG” explores a day in the life of inhabitants of a cemetery as they explore the power of memories, existential dread and finally a peaceful acceptance.
In 1997 magician/psychic, Uri Geller tried to help Second Division football club Exeter City win a crucial end of season game by placing “energy-infused” crystals behind the goals at Exeter’s ground (Exeter lost the game 5–1). Although made famous by his spoon-bending theatrics throughout the 1970’s and 80’s, Geller was unable however to ever successfully bend a fork.
Both the convex and concave complexity of the bent spoon is explored as a reflection of the duplicitous ambiguity of Geller; the fine line between artist and conman in a post-truth world.
Well, something like that.
Weightlessly, life moves through dark infinity, a mystical space without threat. The dance embodies the beauty of nature, appears innocent. But as suddenly as it arises, it becomes vulnerable and physical – life is suffocated by dead matter. Plastic. Reality. An estimated 5 – 12 million tons of plastic waste reach our oceans every year. – Where does it come from? Where is it going? What remains? These and other questions are posed by the short film Watermorphosis. Abstractly staged, based on facts, it forms an image, a feeling, a thought – open to interpretations and dreams.
