  • 3.9
Filmmaker Paul Clipson's underlying attraction to things that elude the touch finds its apotheosis in the translucent thread of the spider's web, contrasted here against the grey solidity of a factory building. Pitched on the lip of nightmare, ARANEAE accesses the sublime in the very small. - Max Goldberg

Nice little film--does great things with camera movement. The texture of the Super8 film is rich.

beautiful!

This video collage set to an appropriately minimalist soundtrack suggests a not-so-vaguely-sinister fever dream, perhaps the result of the kiss of a spider woman. Reminds one of Expressionist experiments from the 1930s.
