Slightseer

Directed by Midi Onodera
Canada, 2001 (video art, 3 minutes, colour, English)

Film Description:
"'Vision is really a controlled hallucination.'
Dr. M. Harris, School of Psychology Birmingham University
People say that cinema in its present state is on the verge of dying. But cinema is much more than just the magical chemistry concealed within this format. It is imagination, faith, suspension of belief. It is our collective past, a reflection of ourselves. Without this history we are doomed to repeat the past. Without our continued thirst to quench our vision we are simply sightseers in a 'global image economy.'"
