Flipping the Stationary Car

Flipping the Stationary Car begins with the following dramatization: some artists in residence turn over a car provided by their hosts marking a final arrival, a total commitment or a break in a continuum. The film tests the divergent capacities of different modes of cinematic expression to mediate something like trauma or event, while displaying their failure to grasp finality. There is a condensation of various phantasma as the film decelerates into discrete sculptural or painterly blocks, even as these resonate and fragment in radio play-like soundscapes.
