DescriptionOne And The Other Time is an erotically charged experimental film exploring the dynamics between intimacy and violence. Grainy blue tinted images of a swaying branch of silver balls rhythmically knocking each other, mesmerise and evoke a sense of our own physical desire and fear. A hypnotic voice-over of a woman's account of a violent moment with her lover conveys a sense of the continual but unattainable desire to reconcile fantasy with external reality.
