APHERESIS

To Pantaflix

Apheresis is the omission of a sound or syllable at the beginning of a word. Based on this, Sebastian Jaimes explores the process of being forgotten in his experimental film. Like a single unspoken syllable, the protagonist seems to no longer exist to the outside world. He waits, imprisoned in a gray building amid smooth concrete walls. Surrounding him are heaps of stones and gravel, which he shovels away without a purpose. The noises echo loudly within the vast space. The telephone is his only connection to the outside world, but nobody answers.
