  • Description (english)

    First Hypnotic Suggestion conjures telepathic transference, hypnosis and collective dream space. Through its spectral tele-cinematic waves, the analogue horror-film protagonists participate in paranormal and fringe scientific experiments, attempting to comprehend the immaterial and incomprehensible expanses of their perception—simultaneously aided and obstructed by the temporal interventions and technological mediations of their transitory parallel dimension. This double-projected film may either be presented and augmented by the filmmakers using components of live sound and manipulated projections, or screened “traditionally” with sound produced from dual, independent optical tracks. Left and right soundtracks, synchronized with their respective images, are intended to engage in subtle, unpredictable shifts and alignments, naturally fluctuating from screening to screening.
