The Hyrcynium Wood
The minimalism of this film is what makes it work well. The use of black and white imagery works well with the fragmented narrative.
I really enjoy the ‘rawness’ of the film. The sound that accompanies it, really brings it together. For example a still scene of field with a house or something in construction, with very rustic sounds of digging and labour, its a very strong a simple way to depict a scene/story.
I also found the way this film is put together and filmed is very creepy and almost makes you jump (which Rivers probably intended). The overlaying footage of the woman walking works great in black and white. This overlaying of imagery is something I could experiment with in my film.
