Amadea Fragment

France, 2001 (MIFF 2002, Experimental)

Director: Celine me Ait-Manna

A single tracking shot of a woman walking along a jetty is ruptured by a random act of violence which is unexpectedly countenanced by a random act of laughter! A sinister little etude, Amadea Fragment plays out with the absurdism of a Brechtian moment.
