PAREIDOLIA is an abstract narrative exploring the landscape/architecture of the body as a container of memories. The film uses bleached and distressed film stock, cut-paper puppets, stop-motion sets, hand-drawn animation and various hybrid techniques. Through a re-imagining of family stories and life events, the film attempts to connect the filmmaker's experiences witnessing public cremations in India to her great-grandmother’s miraculous survival of a mass killing by Hungarian Nazis along the banks of the Danube in 1944.
Winner of the 2013 Barbara Aronofsky Award at the Ann Arbor Film Festival.
