Espejo de: A Woman Escapes
Chingiz Osmanov, Melanie Scheiner, and Liza Glazunova
Sofia Bohdanowicz, and Calvin Thomas
Art’s healing power is at the epicenter of Point and Line to Plane. The works of Swedish artis Hilma af Kling and Russian Wassily Kandinsky ease the grief of a young woman who had lost one of the pillars of her life. Between intimate diary and fiction, the protagonist wanders through museums and cities, reversing the inner darkness by filling herself with sublime stimuli. Bohdanowicz shot the film with her iPhone and then filmed these images in 16 mm from a computer screen, achieving a texture of multiple nuances. JAVIER H. ESTRADA
