Visions

Canada, 1992 (MIFF 1993, Experimental)

Director: Garine Torossian

A film within a film, shot on Super 8 attached to 16mm leader. A ruthless dismantling of thriller conventions — a gun, a threatened woman, shrieking music — which explores the body in motion. A cold shower for the (male) mind.
