  • daniroelleb's rating of the film Medea

    I loved this work, the opening cloud sequence was beautiful the perspective/shots of the women (pregnant) lying down was absolutely gorgeous. I will rewatch this many times to fully try grasp the totality of this works meaning but I will say from first glance, I am very much inspired and the sound scapes were beautiful also. This is something you don't see to often 7 mins of true black experimentation and video art.
