"Titan and Dione: Saturn Returns" chronicles a moment of lucid futurity in a young woman's life. Recounting the destruction of her home planet in haunting libretto, she splits, unable to resist gravity, drawn inexplicably into the orbits of two of Saturn's largest moons.
"Influenced by myodesopsia and other entoptic phenomenon as much as by experimental film, the oscillation between recognition and optical illusion drives the emotional tension forward in this short piece. Allowing a moment of reflection to define the characters was inspired by the Japanese concept of Maa, or emptiness, as interpreted for cinema by master animator Hayao Miyazaki. - Ruby Kato Attwood
