This silent, short film features original music by both the filmmaker Geena Matuson and compositions by John Cage. All double-exposure for this film was done in-camera for this surrealist short.
A girl is trapped in a box - or, is she? This 16mm/HD, surrealist short follows Luna as she listlessly travels through different environments, trying to find a way out of "the box" in which she is trapped. However, this dreamlike journey takes her in a circle, one door simply leading to another - does she truly find her way out?
