Postponing the Inevitable (2007)
Film shot on 16mm
Postponing the Inevitable is a short film presenting alternative interpretations on the theme of near-death. Based on true stories, the film’s three chapters Falling, Faking and Freezing conceptually sit between traditional cinematic storytelling and an ambiguous space of visual representation, asking the viewer to interpret the clues provided: A garbage collector is photographed by a woman for an unknown purpose, a man walks backwards and forwards at the beach, a hospital contains a lone patient. In collaboration with Noam Toran.
Commissioned by the Wellcome Trust.
