C.A.G.E. is a fictional documentary about ‘Variations on a Plain Index’ a 1945 sound work by an unnamed experimental composer. C.A.G.E. is a subtle and philosophical story about an artist’s relationship to environment and how component elements of an artwork can represent subjective states of mind. C.A.G.E. is a psychological or physical cage, it is the notes C, A, G and E which make up the final noise, it is the names of the mine shafts in Death Valley where the final recording is made. C.A.G.E. is the final resting place of the sound work, an unmanned electrical substation somewhere near Las Vegas.

WINNER OF BEST EXPERIMENTAL SHORT
Filmmakers Pelletier and Bundock carved their film as Canadian Sculptor Marie-Josee Roy advanced her sculpting, her work influencing the film, the filming biasing her process. An artistic spiral where everyone had to constantly re-adapt. Even though everybody was tight on following their initial concept, ideas kept popping out to a point where even the initial concept of the sculpture itself changed during the course of the shooting.

An original intersection of documentary, dance-for-camera, and dream-like fantasy, ‘Two Seconds AFter Laughter’ creates a border-jumping dialogue on a universal irony: The heart longs most for the one place to which it can never fully return…home. With a narrative inspired by choreographer Sri Susilowati’s return to Indonesia after 20 years in America, ‘Two Seconds…’ is a conversation on the nature of memory; a cry of longing caused by separation; and a fable-like tale of the joy and emotional dislocation experienced by contemporary immigrant people. Weaving stunning cinematography, traditional Indonesian dance, Sundanese music, and an emotionally-potent narrative, the film resonates as a meditation on being alone in a fast-moving transnational world.
