Mock Gravity

USA, 1988 (MIFF 1988, Experimental)

Director: Franco Marinai

Mock Gravity is a physics theory that describes how two objects that are in each other's shadow are attracted to each other.

This experimental film represents the force of attraction between painter and actress. Mock Gravity combines photographic representation with experimental techniques of image manipulation through damaging, removing, painting and drawing on the film emulsion.
