  1. Inka's rating of the film Incantations

  2. panagiotatos's rating of the film Incantations

    Art at its rawest, almost primordial, form. The elements of life are depicted in their creepy, but still magnificent force and the Islamic liturgy's weird sounds and monotonous rhythm make the viewer stand in awe before the mystery of nature.

  3. DrFirestone's rating of the film Incantations

    Psychedelic, trippy experience; interesting and quite unique. I appreciated the analogue editing techniques, the effects, and the hypnotic atmosphere.

  4. Luis Camey's rating of the film Incantations

  5. darioscha's rating of the film Incantations

    una forma de plasmar la experiencia de un viaje místico a partir de la experimentación fílmica.

  6. Alexandra Díaz Vásquez's rating of the film Incantations

  7. fearraigh's rating of the film Incantations

    It's a creditable attempt at a filmic mandala but it looks a bit ungainly in comparison to the kinetic animations of Len Lye or Norman McLaren and is probably a little too of its time to resonate far beyond. An interesting effort nonetheless.

  8. zhanna's rating of the film Incantations

    perfect combination of visuals and sounds

  9. findfilm's rating of the film Incantations

    A montage of rapid-fire shots of nature perfectly sequenced to provide a unique portrait of that on which we depend but so flippantly abuse. The Islamic chant provides an aural counterpoint that similarly removes us from our comfort zone. An 8 minute analogue masterpiece that surely was years in the making - and would hold it's own against modern day digital trickery. Simply and literally stunning.

  10. azemal's rating of the film Incantations

    it's very funny how white cunts happen to use islamic liturgy in their so-called avant-garde art, while they colonize muslims. maybe there should be a revolution against the 'orthodoxy' of avant-garde.

  11. Kadjavsi's rating of the film Incantations

  12. tenonder's rating of the film Incantations

  13. bulgrin's rating of the film Incantations

    Very interesting and stunning experiment about rythm and the interaction between image and sound.

  14. maradentro's rating of the film Incantations

  15. Robert Peters-Gehrke's rating of the film Incantations

    Accompanying an ecstatic Islam chant the film shows organic forms in blurry images, their editing pace varying with the chant's pace. More a hypnotic experience than a film it sure tests the viewer's patience. The psychedelic colours in the film's second half were a touch too much for my taste.

  17. Harrywolf Krstl's rating of the film Incantations

  18. Antje Majewski's rating of the film Incantations

  19. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Incantations

    Interesting visual effects, but the parallelism of abstract pictures and sound is a little bit too simple.

  20. Victor Gonzalez's rating of the film Incantations

    Weird but beyond mesmerising. A surprise.

  21. Atzin Ortiz González's rating of the film Incantations

    An actual incantation of sound and images. The actual charm created by the way images and chanting merge is mesmerizing. An interesting videoart.

  22. vigabrielo's rating of the film Incantations

    Alucinante....me sentí ave, insecto o algo así viajando entre hojas y ramas [...] lo considero como un experimento audiovisual...

  24. Charlie's rating of the film Incantations

    Estresante. Me mareo al verla. Amo la naturaleza pero no pude apreciar la belleza en este corto. Esperaba más
