24th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
LATENCY/ CONTEMPLATION 5
Structures of lyrical scenes composed into shifting layers of geometric objects set out to work accompanied by noise minimalism, changeable perspective and close ups. Compositions made in this way, capturing trees, bushes, plants and rivers, recall the fluidity of landscapes and nature (or rather their concepts).
“Frames within a frame, this meticulous dual structure suggests psychological and visual provocations of linear aspects such as time and place, guiding the viewer to the moment of visual meditation.” S. Cho
