Red Capriccio (2014)

Running time: 6:48
Native format: Quicktime MOV (Anaglyph 3D)

An anaglyphic found footage film about machines and landscape that interlaces motion with stasis, staccatos with glissandos, and reds with blues. Its three movements depict a parked Chevy Caprice police vehicle, a montage of trips along Montréal’s Turcot Interchange, and a not-quite-empty basement rave room.
