Verses is a film that animates old water damaged and moldy books. The books are juvenile hall ledgers from the 1940’s – 1960’s. The ledgers were written by councilors on the daily observations of the children in their charge.
This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
A Rorschach inkblot test scribbled by water’s nameless phalanx to see if we, joint pages of halved folios, have split asunder. A tomographic sectioning of my etheric body to detect any part of it where you've not settled yet. Lunar cyclopic stare punctured by trees' scrawny thoraces (haggard Monteiros dancing on dank prison bars), branded on sphinx moth overcoats as your impression in me - a gelatin silver veronica.
