A collection of audio-visual Haiku poems. Stop-motion poetry, oscillating between animation, documentary and experiment. Transforming Haiku poetry based on 5-7-5 syllables to the audio-visual form using a 5-7-5 second shot structure. The author made the film during a two-month art residency in Japan and uses typical local motifs, which he often puts in unusual contexts.
In his storyless film, Vojtěch Domlátil focuses on various patterns that surround us and that we repeatedly encounter but we do not pay any attention to them. A real physical feeling from the used materials is supplemented by corresponding sounds and, as the author says, “is built upon perfect patterns.” Tenderness, weakness and kitsch. Life in twelve frames per second.
An observer, who clears his mind and constrains his resources to work only with time and motion in space, can not only find pixilation rapture, but what’s more, if he connects to the wave, his journey will consume him in his entirety. And everything plays its part – waving of the grass, clouds, hills and valley, sunlight and also ourselves. A non-narrative pixilation of the Czech landscape.
