Turning Tide and Cataract

Experimental Film

Single-channel HD video, Colour, Sound, 8’41”

The film is dialogue-free and follows a senior female student who spends her day editing a project at home, only to be interrupted by a man who pursues and threatens her. It is divided into three parts, exploring the concepts of 'Continuity,' 'Disturbance,' and 'Exaggeration' respectively, in an ironic and subversive manner through the use of various filmmaking techniques, including mise-en-scene, editing, and sound.

The project aims to conduct analytical research about film editing and cinematographic techniques in order to explore variable terms and depict them through a time-based medium.
