The film

  • Film identity

    Original title: Tracheal Shave

    Directed by: Gina KAMENTSKY

    Gina Kamentsky creates kinetic sculptures which exist in the somewhat chaotic and messy real world and animated films for the screen where gravity is a bit less of a concern. Her current artistic concern involves invoking the sweet spot where representation and surface push and pull each other like a two-headed llama. She is pursuing this by drawing and painting images directly on film stock, a technique known as Direct Animation.
