I should have watched Raya Martin's films much earlier. But better late than never. Not all of his films feel quite as slow as his feature debut, which he made at the young age of only 21 in 2005. A genius, if you ask me. A thought-provoking, powerful piece.
I've chosen this work mainly because of its aesthetics. I can connect it to earlier remarks of mine about the roots of Slow Cinema. Martin's A Short Film... was shot in the style of a 1920s film. It's in black-and-white . . .
