Shadow Movie – The Symptoms /2011

This black and white experimental short film is an abstract cartoon with living people. Its visuality emerged from a former performance of Réka Szabó’s dance company, The Symptoms. Nothing There (2008) uses a unique video technique that transforms both the performers and their shadows into living figures on stage.
Shadow Movie is dealing with the experience of nothingness, the impossibility of meeting and finding each other; but above all, it is a play with forms. The film premiered on October 8, 2010, at the EDIT2010 6th International Dancefilm Festival in Budapest.

The movie was awarded at the 42nd Hungarian Film Week and Timishort Film Festival.
