The Partition
Experimental fiction | hdv | color | 21'21'' | Luxembourg / United Kingdom | 2018
Blake awakes from a comatic episode for which there doesn't seem to be any explanation. Set in London, the film interweaves his and other characters' discontinued journeys marked by peculiar moments and encounters. At once sober and enigmatic, "The Partition" reflects on singularity, alienation and intangible windows in the wider context of a shifting techno-capitalist environment.
