Arising From The Surface: experimental short film

Roland Graf

Shot entirely in slow motion, Arising from the Surface is an experimental film that shows seven scenes from a taxi ride to an art residency in the heart of Mumbai. Taking cues from Indian avant-garde filmmaker Mani Kaul, the camera’s focus on peripheral imagery and lateral visions creates complex narratives and fluid urban panoramas that go beyond perceptual limits and generalizations produced by the eye (in collaboration with Robert Platt).
