Exposing her role behind the camera, Kirsten Johnson reaches into the vast trove of footage she has shot over decades around the world. What emerges is a visually bold memoir and a revelatory interrogation of the power of the camera.
Jackie works as a CCTV operator. Each day she watches over a small part of the world, protecting the people living their lives under her gaze. One day a man appears on her monitor, a man she thought she would never see again, a man she never wanted to see again. Now she has no choice, she is compelled to confront him.
Mark Snow gives you on extreme experimental experience, he has done everything possible to distort his images here and the low hum of sounds continues with sudden jarring high frequency bolts to keep the audience in check. The living room scene is definatly something special, the very high frequency colours seem to almost pop out of the screen at you and the way he controls the objects in that scene is just amazing, esspecially when he starts brining in the real objects in place of the generated ones and making them disappear just as easily. Obviously it is experimental and not for everyone, but Mark Snow is a legend making film for almost 40 years now and this definatly belongs in best work list.
