Heavy Eyes (Schwere Augen), 2011, 10 min

Siegfried A. Fruhauf, Austria

Experimental, Films in Competition, Short Film

In this hand-processed inscription of cinema negation, unnamed players in found-footage fragments shimmer hypnotically in faint exchanges as a sound engine bears down heavily from above. Darkened figures outline themselves over and over as doppelgängers in negative and positive, unfolding endlessly as though calyxes hidden within mercurial emulsion.
