Bubble Numb

Australia, 1997 (MIFF 1998, Experimental)

Director: Jessica Grynberg

Set within the mind and dreams of a young woman in her mid 20s, this short film sets the viewer on a journey through paranoia and bemusement. With a hazy dream sequence that lulls the viewer into an illusory frame of mind, Bubble Numb is a charming exploration of the world as only Beatrice herself experiences.
