The Achromatic Island

Austria, 2010 (MIFF 2012, Experimental)

Director: Sofie Thorsen

The Achromatic Island

Achromats are hypersensitive to light and cannot see colour. Sofie Thorsen's gorgeous The Achromatic Island reimagines achromatic perception as a cinematic essay on sight.

Not in competition.
