DescriptionStunningly shot (originally on 35mm) and beautifully edited, RESERVAAT is a witty pastiche about women and nature. Two women in fur dresses closely embracing, create an animal-like choreographed dance in deserted woodland. We hear only the sound of occasional distant traffic, the snap of a twig, birds singing. The camera whirls with the women as though part of the dance and the careful editing adds to the rhythm of the piece. Removed from the rest of the world, the women are free to express their desire.
