Ben Russell – Against Time (2022)

Ben Russell explores how we experience time in his latest striking and hallucinatory short film. Between Carpathian Mountains, Vilnius punk clubs, a Belarusian Independence Day celebration, and Marseille, hovers in a limbo of drone and fog, then descends into stroboscopic clusters of moments and movements.

Perhaps one of Ben Russell’s most improvised and (indirectly) personal films. This hallucinatory short film consists of material shot in Finland, Greece, Belarus, Romania, Lithuania and Marseille. It is divided into two parts: one blue – which is more in the style of a documentary, but very abstract and with fragmented editing – and the other red. The very core of the red part is built on long flashing sequences, which work as a meditation on the relationship between memory, time and repression.
