Mind's Eye

Australia, 1998 (MIFF 1999, Experimental)

Director: Craig Godhard

Mind's Eye revels in its situationst surreality. A roilercoaster journey through a series of locations becomes a crazed ride in a million directions. The laws of physics do not apply to Godhard. Taking a frugal idea and pushing it to the limit, Godhard once again proves that a sweet simple visual conceit is often the best.
