LET YOUR FILM DO THE TALKING
""Aquatoria" is an abstract poetic video painting, experimental movie balancing on the verge of video art and cinema. Author’s reflection on the club movements of the 70-80-90s. All footage was shot at dawn, accompanied by the original soundtrack without narration.
The main character is the Disco ball. The Сaptain shoots him with a bow, and accidentally falls into the dream of an Indian, a lighthouse keeper, who demonstrates to the Captain three women - present, past and future. Each of them escaped from a noisy party and welcomes a new day at the port.
The Disco ball collects all the characters into one story, drawing the viewer's imagination into a trip, a dream, a state of fragile idyll, when the world comes to life. In this movie, it is not a person who looks at the sun, but the sun turns its gaze on it. Art is not a reflection of reality, but a reality of reflection. Everything is reflections!
The film could be shown on three screens by three FullHD projectors, or on the one screen by a 4K projector (in this case it will be a single-channel video file 5760x1080)."
