#ClockworkDig
#Article   by #VisualArtist / #Researcher #KhaledHafez  2014

Inspired by several #uprisings for a period of three years, " #Clockwise " is a #ShortFilm written, directed and produced by the #Egyptian visual artist and #filmmaker #Sameh_Al_Tawil in 2014. Along the duration of the #film, the #artist poses several #philosophical questions during 6 minutes, using a #cinematic language that relies on corporal expressions and hard-cuts. With extreme shots taken from below the ground or from above his subjects, the viewer is entangled in shots that are much reminiscent of feature film classics that incorporated the #narrative and the #experimental, like #Sergio_Leone ’s Spaghetti Westerns, #Hitchcock ’s #Vertigo, and #Stanley_Kubrick ’s #The_Shining , especially those scenes that involved movement without dialogue. The artist’s choice for the use of #BlackAndWhite accentuates the #visual narrative and renders each scene as an exquisite #photograph that tells its own story, with each frame possessing its own space and time. The outcome of this sublime visual research is an abstract narrative that transcends culture, language, dialogue and geography.
#Clockwise , as the description suggests, represents movement is a very precise and specific direction. The clockwise movement throws resemblance to the #religious #circumambulatory movements practiced by pilgrims and #Sufis in #spiritual practices, except that all such practices are –actually— #Anti_Clockwise. All movement in such case can be perceived as a sign of #infinite #confusion, and hence the artist also indirectly refers to the absolute obscurity through which #political #factions operate, moving round and round in void circles. Here, notions of the finite, the infinite, life, death and #continuity are touched upon by #choreography that displays #repetition of movement, frame composition that explores open space and its inhabitants, color scheme that spans the challenging hues of shadow and light, and the brilliant mystic #music score that weaves all scenes together.
