Flower Fall

An Experimental Film by Laura Zaylea
Super-8mm and 16mm on 16mm / Color / Sound
4.5 minutes

Flower Fall is a meditation on vibration and color, inspired by the chakra system. Colors and vibrations were placed in an arrangement intended to activate the chakras. Super-8mm Ektachrome film has been hand-processed, optically printed on to 16mm Ektachrome film, and hand-processed again. The result is a film celebrating the essence of luminosity and movement. Luminosity from behind the screen references the essence of cinema and our own ‘inner light.’ The single film frame is the core element of movement, the essence of animation.
