The Lens Prism

The Lens Prism – a film by Corin Sworn (UK, 2010)

“A man steps into the spotlight of a theatre, hangs up his jacket, takes a sip of water and begins the narration. A series of vignettes weave together autobiographical anecdote with history, and past events with present day interpretation. Corin Sworn’s video piece deals with the discursive wanderings of the actor’s mind. His voice is confident and convincing throughout, yet the narrative thread tangles and we become witness to the fractals of a subtly short circuiting thought process.”
Talitha Kotzé, The List.

Shown at Tramway, Glasgow and Berwick Upon Tweed Film & Media Arts Festival, 2010.
