AT THE FORMAL (7', Australia, 2011, dir: Andrew Kavanagh)

Graduating year. Twelve students in formal attire, their parents and teachers, mill around the grounds and car park of a hall in the twilight. At first glance, it looks like the normal proceedings of a school formal. Parents get photos with their children, clusters of 18 year olds chat excitedly and one boy is hoisted on the shoulders of his friends. But as time goes on, the observation of uncanny moments hint that things may not be exactly as they seem. The slow motion technique in only one extended long take makes the ritualized dynamics of a high school formal increasingly sinister.
