Filmmaker Dominica Harrison tells a surreal tale about the serendipitous meeting of two lonely souls who live in their own imaginary world.
When two people accidentally meet by an accident, they find themselves both lost — each in their own limbo. They wander through the landscapes of the own imagination. To get out, they must win a simple game with only one rule: the next level is just a step down.
The film is inspired by short story “Goats Eyes” by Russian author Max Frei.
Harrison created “Illusions” using a screen-printing technique, where each frame is drawn by hand, turned into color separations and screen printed on A3 sheets of paper — and then scanned back in to create an animated sequence. Over 400 screen prints were created to make this film.
