Dark Dark is an uncanny ghost dance of narrative gesture blending four found story fragments: Noir, Western, Romance and Chase. The music of Ennio Morricone provocatively interacts with the images, tantalising the audience with webs of memory, meaning and elusive folly. This film is a work of subtraction, repositioning celluloid into a funny and haunting, strangely poignant world. It creates a vortex of reflexive cinema materialised in upside-down and backwards footage.
