A Black Rift Begins to Yawn
DIRECTOR: Matthew Wade TACOMA FILM FESTIVAL | PRESENTED BY WEIRD ELEPHANT
Two scientists come into possession of their recently-deceased professor’s set of cassette tapes, thought to contain recordings of signals from beyond the stars. As the former classmates dig into the recordings, they begin to feel memory, time and their identities slip into obscurity.
An experiment in steam-of-conscious narrative filmmaking, A Black Rift Begins to Yawn is a tone poem spouting from the dark forest floors of the Pacific Northwest.
