27th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
director: Marina Hendrychová
original title: Lycaeon
country: Czech Republic
running time: 9 min.
synopsisThis combined film melds together not only different techniques but also different thematic topics. The titular mythical figure is just one of the actors in this dreamworld speaking to a contemporary audience in codes of media and narratives that are dear to it. Like a vision or nightmare trapped in the loop of a computer prism.
>The frozen white noise, static snow >That is your memory >Although I know we'll never meet >You're in every part of me.
