A Flicker, a Flood

A Flicker, a Flood is a short film split into three segments in the story structure of a three-act play. Functioning as an abstract narrative, it features a sometimes cloaked and always masked female lead character. The film is shot using an overhead projector, black ink, and paper cutouts, in combination with live action. Taking inspiration from The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari and Nosferatu, the film operates in a choppy, dreamlike manner, and with dark and haunting visuals. The text is declarative, the imagery disjointed, and the overall feeling unsettling and intriguing. A Flicker, a Flood hopes to keep you on edge, while simultaneously holding your hand through explorations of relationships and confrontations.
