Ghosts Of The Past
Reviewed by: Amber Wilkinson
Thea Stevenson has creatively animated the affects of domestic violence in this brief, but memorable short.
Monochrome images show a woman on a bed as a black cloud settles over her. Memories of abuse as sharp as a slap are depicted in abstraction. A raised arm is highlighted with a glow which clearly indicates a threat.
Stevenson boils the anger down to basics and creates a strong message about the legacy of violence in the process.Reviewed on: 04 Mar 2007
