The Sacrifice

15 second exposures of ‘The Sacrifice’, a film by the great Russian auteur, Andrei Tarkovsky.

I had the idea as Tarkovsky was an advocate of using long takes in his film making, which permitted beautiful open compositions to remain in shot for long periods.

‘Slow Cinema’ made slower.

I quite like how the subtitles blend into a strange ensemble in some shots.

The film does emphasize mirrors and reflections quite a lot, so perhaps that aspect of the film infiltrated my subconscious, creating this as a result. You could say certain scenes and shot’s within have now become “mirrored” or “reflected” in each other- i especially like the few resulting shots that end up looking like double exposures.
