2015 SF Indie Film Fest: For the Plasma

I’d like to see this narrative feature as a gallery installation: the landscape of Northern Maine which the filmmakers capture is full of the small sounds of summer life, the sturdy grey rocks of the coast, the lush greens and purposeful but relaxed pace of the country.  Juxtaposed with shots of computer and TV screens and allusions to the contemporary urban life, there is a contrast between the urban and the bucolic, the manufactured and the natural, and the pastoral and dystopian. Not to mention that seemingly banal but eerie central frame that hangs deep in the woods, a portal between nature and man and the bridge between the normal and the supernatural.

For the Plasma, dir. Bingham Bryant and Kyle Molzan, 90 min. Part of the 2015 SF Indie Film Festival, running through 19 February 2015.
