Brain Surge

Australia, 1994 (MIFF 1994, Experimental)

Director: Nick Ostrovskis

Burlesque drawings, shapes, symbols, flowers, landscape, snowflake etchings and rich abstract colour fields in continuous kaleidoscopic collision; Brain Surge is in rhythmic pursuit. Chris Knowles' post-systems music track drives the film's relentless zooming and spinning images on a journey, which like the most rewarding fairground rides, is an end in itself.
