SHORT NARRATIVE 15 Minutes World Premiere
FILM GUIDE BLACK WHITE BLACK WHITE

Like a Rorschach inkblot brought to life, BLACK WHITE BLACK WHITE is a personal abstract experimental short film that explores and calls attention to the primal guts of cinema, its relationship to the filmmaker, and the act of seeing.

About the Director(s)
John Thompson credits his acute sense of color and light to being flung from the back of a speeding pick-up truck at the tender age of 13. When he regained consciousness, he knew he wanted to be a filmmaker. His short Songbird played at Sundance and Breathe received a Student Academy Award nomination.
