The author of the film / seen on the screen / screams: yyyy… Four sources of light constituting lighting are switched by lottery, by an electronic device, within the bounds of chance from 0 to 8 seconds.
In any moment of the film only one of the four lamps casts light on the author.
Each of the four directions of lighting has its equivalent in a different modulation of the author’s voice.
The modulation changes synchronically with the change of lighting.
The film technique provides the author with a five-minute long exhalation.
A repeated change of the shot from a close-up to a semi close-up and vice versa is motiveless. – W.B.
