“To him the meaning of an episode was not inside like a kernel but outside, enveloping the tale which brought it out only as a glow brings out a haze, in the likeness of one of these misty halos that sometimes are made visible by the spectral illumination of moonshine.”
—Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness
A series of films in which the surface of the images trumps the narrative as the vehicle for meaning. Special effects, intense lighting, extreme image resolution, and hyper-real sound heighten the subject of the film through the tension between surface-level sensuality and the narrative. This creates experiences where the intuition of the senses has more interpretive power than what words can hold.
