Storyline

By subjecting fragments from the Akira Kurosawa's film Rashomon to a mirror effect, Provost creates a hallucinatory scene of a woman's reverse chrysalis into an imploding butterfly. This physical audiovisual experience produces skewed reflections upon Love, its lyrical monstrosities, and a wounded act of disappearance. Written by Anonymous

The Best Experimental Film Ever
28 April 2004 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Well, maybe not ever. I got to see this short film at the Ann Arbor Film Festival and I was blown away. I have seen a good amount of experimental films and this one is definetly the best.

It uses clips from Kurasawa's "Roshomon" and edits them in a very interesting way. The image is cut in half down the middle, then mirrored so that one see a symmetrical rendering on the screen during the whole film.

It won the award for best experimental and best use of sound.

9/10
