All For A Helen Short Film, Audience FEEDBACK from Aug. 2021 EXPERIMENTAL Film Festival
FESTIVAL AUDIENCE FEEDBACK VIDEOS • 8m 17s
ALL FOR A HELEN, 15min., Greece, Experimental
Directed by Kakia Gkoudina
“For a Helen” is a multimedia work for film, sound and electronics. It is a multimedia composition; the music and visuals were composed at the same time. It is the outcome of an ongoing research in the narrative abilities of the aforementioned media when used in tandem.
The syntax of the work is characterized by parataxis – the placement of stimuli one after the other “without coordinating or subordinating connectives” (Merriam-Webster), thereby generating a spectrum of narratives by the very association of the stimuli to each other. This form of syntax provides a freer platform for the exploration of the media’s expressive as well as time construction capabilities.
