Three short selections from 'Inside Rashomon' - 28:29 - By Morgan Beringer - 2017
Inside Rashomon is the first of a series of experimental works that condense narrative feature films into dramatically shortened abstract reconfigurations. In comparison to the original the process is intended to both reveal new visual compositions while reducing the emphasis of narrative structure. Viewers might come from different backgrounds of experience, some having seen the original first, some not having seen the original, and others still potentially seeing the original afterward, etc. By comparing what is obscured with what remains intelligible one is urged to reflect upon the connection between memory and present experience, subjective vs objective, and the resulting connections to private vs public, copyright protected vs public domain, and so on.
