Most impressive of all is the most recent film on offer, In Absentia… if the pace of the film is manic, its tone is elegiac. The repeated shots of the woman’s swollen fingers curled around her pencil, both hands used to keep the point steady but also providing such force that the graphite keeps snapping, is so simple in its tragedy.

The demon may be reading over [the woman’s] shoulder or may not care at all. But by being in color the creature seems hyperreal, more even than the human actor. It is like Descartes’ evil demon, the source of madness, rendered with tactile care.

It begins with a static shot of what looks like space stations, with flickers of light igniting the sky above. Is it a chemical plant? A mission to Mars gone awry? Extreme close ups of the woman follow in an abrupt, discomfiting succession, as we also see the inner workings of her mind spiraling out of control. An eery musical accompaniment by orchestral electronic pioneer Karlheinz Stockhausen appropriately accompanies the piece.
