And You the Bell

In the absence of dialogue, And You the Bell assembles a psychic still-­life of a woman in her home. The camera aggressively studies her habits and gestures, a compulsive set of behaviors mostly limited to cleaning, bathing, and sleeping. The protagonist is firmly embedded within the psychological atmosphere of the domestic space she inhabits. Through the unfolding of her immediate environment and its uncertain architecture, we find a bell jar, a belle, an emergency, an hour sneaking up, a request for entry, and a manic moving back and forth.
