Blank

Director: Cristina Ertze.
Four people awake in a derelict house with no memory of who they are or why they are there. All they know is that tonight, when they fall asleep they will forget everything again, so they have only a few hours to find out something – anything – about what or who is doing this to them. As they journey through a desolate, abandoned landscape they come to realise that this may all have happened before. And that they may be their own enemies. Blank is a existential, psychological thriller which explores the cycle of violence and retribution which comes from the failure to remember the lessons of the past. The film is inspired by Milan Kundera’s quote “the struggle of freedom against power is the struggle of memory against forgetting”. A post-apocalyptic thriller about suspicion, mistrust and fear which leads to a shocking conclusion, the film is a political parable of the dangers of forgetting lessons and repeating mistakes.

A Whale of a Concept in Wholphin: Issue 1

user
  Wholphin: Issue 1 was my introduction to this innovative approach to film.  The Wholphin film series is touted as “a quarterly DVD magazine, published by McSweeney’s, lovingly encoded with unique and ponderable films designed to make you feel the way we felt when we learned that dolphins and whales sometimes, you know, do it.”  That last part is fodder for a film I’d need to see before I believe it.  But the sentiment evoked by viewing Wholphin might best be describe...
