A Rent in the Veil

Posted by

“A Rent in the Veil” is a meditation on the elasticity of time, the mystery of an unfolding cosmos, and the endurance of wonder. From the mesmerizing drift of millennia found in Herzog’s caves, to the slow-motion transformations witnessed in Viola’s video art, A Rent in the Veil embraces an aesthetic that is more about contemplative introspection than any particular formal orthodoxy. The absence of tracking shots or close-ups are reminiscent of Benning’s 13 Lakes, even as the animated text and soundtrack that weave through black and white imagery evoke passages that conjure the fledgling years of cinema.

Directed by Andrew Beckham (USA)
