Time/Colour Separations

Director: Arthur and Corinne Cantrill

A three-color separation film shot on black and white negative with three separate exposures through red, green and blue filters and printed onto color film stock with similar filtration, expressing temporal differences of events through color. The viewer is involved in a kind of game, in which the action has to be interpreted from the clues given by the color.
