A stoboscopic odyssey. A geologic horror film.
Crusts combines searing drone noise with footage of mysterious architectural and natural artifacts. The film evolves from meditations on concrete physical textures to a complete stroboscopic transfiguration of the image. The footage is accompanied by a crushing, hypnotic onslaught of guitar and electronic noise by White/Light.
