Arena

Directed by Lois Siegel
Canada, 1979 (animation / avant-garde, 7 minutes, colour, English)
Video (SAW Video)

Film Description:
"Arena is a study of images and movement. Stark black and white photographs of faces have been airbrushed with colour. They dissolve one into another. The central image is a long boy: Guy. Guy is a deaf mute. As the film progresses, the viewer is exposed to Guy's special world of faces. In Arena, two worlds encounter each other, but the exchange is only visual -- a dialogue of silence."
