The Wedding Present


Rental Format(s): 16mm film

"the wedding present belated but here -- for you two (and possible others, including my own).
or hold onto the reception's pendulum - until, the union of sky and water." - JS

...is an ironically dark response to its title. It pictures an oversaturated, white and blue stop motion animation of the double image of a man jumping into a river, holding his nose before the final splash. A bug appears for less than a second, making an almost subliminal connection. The act of falling becomes a figurative abstraction, while the entire image gets transformed into dark blue obscurity. Schwartz, on a note of likewise dark humor, adds the score from Twin Peaks as covered by the British band The Wedding Present. - Monica Saviron
