a haunting, abstract animation
17 February 2001 | by (mexico city, mexico) – See all my reviews

it seems simple, almost too simple. white scratches on black film, abstract lines that move to the rhythm of african drums. yet this film is captivating. the lines seem to become three-dimensional and jump out at you, and combine with the beat to dance. worth seeing if you get the chance.
