Act Five

Tasman Richardson

1997, 00:40 minutes, colour/B&W


Cut from black to a girl, her long black hair glistening on the surface of dark water, crisscrossing like eels to form a veil in front of her. All of her is submerged from below her green gray eyes. Flashes of television static appear in the water illuminating her face. Sudden, jolting, irregular cuts to static and her silhouette. Noise and subliminal text shower the audience, rising gradually to a drowning summit.
