PROTOTYPE Unclassified 15+
An immersive 3D audio-visual experience, this highly anticipated debut feature from Toronto-based critic and experimental filmmaker Blake Williams boldly pivots from historical disaster to hypnotic science fiction to create a cinescape like no other.
Having experimented extensively with anaglyph 3D across a number of acclaimed shorts (and written at length on the likes of late Godard), filmmaker Blake Williams unleashes the full force of his stereoscopic imagination in this short feature that remixes the past into an ambitious vision of the future.
Beginning with historical images of his native Texas and the catastrophic Galveston hurricane of 1900, Williams deploys various cinematic techniques – including reshooting 3D footage projected on vintage television screens – to evoke a hallucinatory future-past and the birth of a "new and mysterious televisual device". The result is a unique odyssey no cinephile should miss.
"An audacious multi-part work of personal historiography that, like Thomas Pynchon’s Against the Day, is made partly of true esoterica and partly invents an alternate past of retro-futurist technology and dreamed digressions." – MUBI
