A LITTLE PRAYER (H-E-L-P)

by Louise BOURQUE
2011 / 35mm / color / sound / 1S / 8' 00

The images of Houdini chained and attempting to free himself: the stop-and-start (interruption-repetition) of his actions; the high-contrast of the images; the stroboscopic effect created by the rhythm of the shutter; the gashes in the emulsion from the hand-processing - combined with the layers of sound, all evoke the violence of a tortured soul in search of escape.
NB: View in total darkness to appreciate full flicker effect.
