Circadian Rhythms

Australia, 2000 (MIFF 2001, Fiction)

Director: Jake Robb

Rhythms presented in an elegant nihilistic view - a personal diary, that moves in time and space to create an illusion through repetition and textures. Shades of Sartre, Picasso and Shakespeare wrought into poetic imagery that examines the state of being.
