Son of Dada
Canada / 2:30 / 1982 / sound / colour
A subtle little narrative; an abstracted interlude between sound and silence, motion and stability, and light and darkness.

"Son of Dada" is the first act of the 16mm "Shadows and Caves" triptych that were produced between 1982-1984. In the first act, letters become forms, having been stripped from the context of words and language, and ultimately, from the logic of sentences.

What remains? Pure cinema, perhaps ... language-written ... on the threshold of liberty and silence within the grips of suspense.
