hypnotically beautiful film paired with equally beautiful music.
a cacophonic embroidery that seamlessly shifts, very quickly, through an arc of nostalgia, fear, and death. cracked pavement, stone paths, and dark trees brilliantly juxtaposed against branding, scars, and murder.
Great short! Loved how the images of horse faces came back throughout the film. In this movie the horses stay real beings, while humans are a faceless and autonomous process that happens to them.
Beautiful and sad.
Pretty much as perfect as a short film gets imho...
Should not have seen this just before going to bed.
