Hyperbolas of the Grain

A series of films that reduces cinematographic expression and movement to a minimum. Fabulous emulsions at different scales of magnification that exaggerate the particles which go to make up the filmic mass: small points of light and fields of colour. The minimal movements that are manifested in the surface of the image are like the flows of grains of sand in a desert.
