Experimental Highights – This Side of Resurrection (113m, Portugal) 實驗電影 焦點 4 – 一半是火焰，一半是海水
Presented in loop at EXPERIMENTA video & film space
19-22 JUNE 2012
A beautiful meditation about life and faith – not only in God but in ourselves. How strong can a film be? Its images powerful enough to change our emotions. A film that deals both with surf and a religious personal quest. Surfing can be a metaphor for life. In our fast Internet age, when 140 characters can be a text, a film as ‘This side of resurrection’ can be a daring experience that forces its audience to take a deep breath and dive with its protagonists siblings into the ocean of life.

Looking at all this year’s entries, we can see that many young independent filmmakers have a deep fascination with topics about technology and the future. In particular, the themes of dreams and virtual reality was given a lot of attention, probably due to the success of the amazing blockbuster “Inception” last year. We selected one of the best out of them, the Italian sci-fi “Quam”. Made with a much lower budget, it is a stylish take on the artificial dream theme which turns out to be a very satisfactory psychological thriller as well.
