director: Guli Silberstein
original title: The Devil Had Other Plans (Act II)
country: United Kingdom
year: 2020
running time: 13 min.


Guli Silberstein turned the anxiety experienced during the first months of the covid pandemic into a three-act film experiment. He found the ideal means to express fear and paranoia in the colored version of the zombie horror movie Night of the Living Dead, which he transformed into an associative stream of abstract images.
"The processed hybrid form of film, video and digital, became a stream of consciousness acting directly on the senses, echoing the Coronavirus pandemic impact, channelling fear, paranoia and suspicion." G. Silberstein
