Rare view into the confused mind of a hunter

I saw Automata at Dungog Film Festival in 2011 in the experimental section of the program. What struck me was its power to seduce me into the delicate and intriguing world of the hunter and this one is haunted by all kinds of crazy visions and sounds as he stalks his pitiful prey in a dark and misty landscape. With an intricate and eerie sound track, the film draws the viewer deep into a rarely trodden world of anguish and confusion. Devoid of dialogue, the director relies on facial expressions and performances of the hunter (played convincingly by Tom McCaffey). Screened alongside a clutch of truly wacky films with barely a plot line between them all, Automata was surprisingly accomplished, satisfying and thought-provoking for an experimental piece. To the director's credit, it's a film one could revisit, unearthing pithy new insight on each occasion. Well done!
