SPITTING IMAGE is a three-minute experimental film. It involves a personal narrative about the struggle to free oneself of the haunting memories of one's past. Its title is intended to convey both the literal and the connotative meanings of the words - SPITTING IMAGE, connotatively, meaning to be of one's likeness; literally, a "spitting" image would be one that mocks or repulses the viewer. The imagery is a quickly edited montage of references to the past optically printed in an attempt to reconstruct them in a more suitable form.
Note: SECOND SKIN and SPITTING IMAGE may be rented together for $50.
