Hello frameworks subscribers (particularly those in the UK),
I have spent a year trying to track down several Irish films I saw played
at a noise show in Montreal in 2010. The band was Nurse with Wound and the
films were by an undisclosed Irish filmmaker.
There were two films that appeared to be by the same person.
1) 30-40 mattresses in a mountain shape in a field. They begin to float up
into the sky, one by one. Obviously done by playing backwards. Very slow,
very haunting. Finally the mattresses are dropped in correct speed and the
impact causes them to dance around the field. They accrue back into the
shape of a mountain.
2) A typical household in the UK or Ireland. A family is drinking tea in
their living room, but something is wrong. The walls are catching on fire,
while the family continues to drink, obliviously. As the fire catches, the
walls open up and reveal human insides--blood, organs, various entrails
drip from the ceiling and walls onto the floor. The family continues to eat
and drink in a kind of daze.
Any help would be appreciated! These films were incredible but the band
never gave me a name.
