SHORTS IN COMPETITION: DOCUMENTARY

THE BATHER

Directed by George Griffin
SHORT DOCUMENTARY 4 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE THE BATHER
A woman is observed showering behind a translucent curtain. Gradually the view is obscured by a superimposed flipbook: a sequence of drawings of a dancing woman. As a harpsichord prelude interrupts the environment of natural sounds, the dancer is freed from the pages and cavorts in a multiplicity of erotic gestures as if propelled by the throbbing contrapuntal tempo. Moving through the overlapping images a string of words suggests sources, motives, and memories.
