Sometimes a little Sin is good for the Soul
Film expérimental | 16mm | couleur | 8:0 | Canada | 2020
“Sometimes a little Sin is good for the Soul” takes place within an architectural, painterly world. Interior structures, shapes and colours form together the unusual spaces within which three women are suspended. Their actions remain bound to their surroundings, while a glowing red “Exit” sign reappears throughout the film to tease its cold surroundings. No matter how often the sign reveals itself, it never points towards a clear way out.
