SYNOPSIS

'Chromophobia' is an abstract fiction short about a young woman waking up in the belly of the city. Disoriented, painfully aware of the coldness of the (near) empty city, she meanders through its abandoned streets, searching for a destination. Her struggle turns into motion poetry as she discovers, in very tactile fashion, the derelict urban environment. In the end, she reaches a wall of light. Fascinated, she reaches in, only to be engulfed by it.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

'Chromophobia' is a film about the beauty of cities at night, it is a love story between a woman that is lost and her environment, at once hostile and wildly poetic. The abandonment of the streets, coupled with the still lit neon signs all around town, creates a sort of floating world in which we can perceive the potential for human interaction, yet witness the desertion of the urban spaces the character briefly inhabits. Most North American cities are diurnal organisms that shut themselves down after the last partygoers have gone home. Somehow, though, the city never truly sleeps: it still, at any point in time and space, create movement, noise and light.
