I caught this on a late night Canadian Broadcasting Corporation show that shows short films. It really caught my fancy. Stockton did a wonderful job in marrying his idea of a world where gravity has gone out of control with the techniques of film.
This is pantomime at its best. What little spoken dialogue there is really is superfluous. The actors sell the concept perfectly by gesture and expression.
Story wise the only downside to this is a lack of clarity on why the phenomenon is taking place and an open ending that might not be pleasing to everyone.
The lighting and camera work is wonderful. The editing, under cranked camera and drab set design contribute to pull off the illusion of weight.
Loved the snow angels at the end. The human spirit triumphs over adversity.
