Tri-Alogue Title

Tri-Alogue Still-



Synopsis: By presenting three filmmakers work simultaneously within a single 16mm frame, Tri-Alogue offers a complexity of perspective that undermines the omniscient cinematic gaze and evokes a deeper relational mystery.

Collaborating to subdivide a 16mm filmframe into thirds, Caryn Cline, Linda Fenstermaker and Reed O'Beirne present their separately-shot-segments simultaneously within one spatial plane. From the interplay of these three points of view, emerges a cinematic conversation based on a horizontal compositional logic within the shared frame. This combined connotative-relationship between the subframes evokes a spectacle of fractured spatial and temporal perspective.
