Spotlight on new Quebecois and Canadian cinema
| 13 minutes | 2014
1221 Amor is a video combining live action with 3D animation. It explores issues of narrative in a work of fiction that has no protagonists and relies on matter and its processes of transformation. The story centers on the relationships between different mineral states, such as rock, bone, and fossil. In the three sequences that make up 1221 Amor, different temporalities merge to create a compressed, indefinite timeframe that runs counter to our traditional linear representation of time. The sounds and images have been produced from pseudo-scientific experiments and use the narrative codes of catastrophe films.
