A drug-addicted poet searches for spiritual redemption as he cooks up morphine
at the
kitchen table with his Auschwitz survivor mother and pet bird. This brilliant,
immersion into the psyche of Dan Biholar, a soul spiralling into oblivion,
pushes the
medium of the moving image about as far as it can go. Biholar vacillates between
moments of acute self-awareness, disturbing darkness, tender sentiment, lyrical
inspiration and delusions of grandeur.
Award-winning experimental filmmaker and sound designer Darryl Miller was once
Biholar's shoes. With unsettling accuracy, Miller sculpts a sensory overload of
soundscape and half-melted psychedelic imagery that submerges us in Biholar's
states. There is no safe distance from which to observe this visceral blurring
between art,
psychosis and reality-let's hope our sanity returns when the lights come back
Co-presented with The Images Festival.
