Strings / Cordes

Top of page

This film paints a vivid portrait of two strangers intimately linked by the shared ceilings, floors and plumbing of their apartments. When an unexpected and pressing problem arises, however, these comfortable connections are compromised. Produced using a painstaking animation process that involves painting on glass and stop-action filming, Strings is a film as beautiful as it is haunting. Film without words.

1991, 10 min 19 s
