Split Description1994

Sorry. This film is not currently available.

  • 3.2
A film of gestures rather than statements, SPLIT DESCRIPTION utilizes a concentric split-screen technique to present a kaleidoscopic moving montage of three diverse locales (in California, Massachusetts and New York). The different zones within the frame interplay, while the hairline borders between them become crucial junctures of vanishing/becoming. The soundtrack, ranging from dead simple to deliriously intricate, collaborates in the collage. Virtually nonverbal (except for some Morse code), the film is a "magic viewing box" designed to cut the viewer free from narrative expectation and instead serve as a tool for reflection on space/time/sound.
