Om, 1986
John Smith

Text from: http://johnsmithfilms.com/selected-works/om/

“This four minute film explores our response to stereotypes –  aural, visual and ideological.  Smith signals these stereotypes to the viewer through a chiefly associational system, which deftly manipulates the path of our expectations. The structure is stunningly simple and deceptively subtle.  We are taken on a journey from one concrete stereotype to its diametric opposite, as images transform and juxtapose to, ultimately, invert our interpretation of what we see and hear.”   Gary Davis.
