Clair / Obscur | Chiaroscuro
Elias Djemil-Matassov Experimental, Canada, 2022, 8min59.
Chiaroscuro… it is between the light and the dark that life operates in contrasts. Between the puppeteer and the puppet. Between shadow and light. The hands, moving or static, bring and transmit emotions. A reciprocal relationship between the puppet and those who give it life, emotions flow in both directions. It is the story of the memory that is born and that dies. But memory rarely dies, to tell the truth. 12 Art
