The Tiger’s Mind

Beatrice Gibson
UK 2012 / 24’

This super production amongst cinema shorts belongs to the rules of the thriller genre. In her film, however, the director does not take dialogue from any established thrillers, but rather develops her own puzzling story in parallel to the film. Beatrice Gibson applies a construction, which contrasts sound and picture, as well as their individual fragments.
