A snowy mountain fills the screen. As the image remains still, the viewer begins to ponder: Is this a painting, a photograph, a small rock, a big mountain? Then, something descends.

  • Rafael Fonseca's rating of the film O.T.

    Rating from memory (wish it was online). A small Avant-garde piece I saw roughly a year ago that probably remains one of my favorites in the genre. A simple, unmoving shot of a snow-covered mountain. For a long while, it is completely immobile, like a painting, precisly to provoke anticipation. In the end, a snowboarder cuts the mountain - and the screen - in exact half, right before it ends. ||| IndieLisboa 2015
