“Spin”

Director: David Marmor

Marmor’s “Spin” is an ingenious piece of filmmaking. The short explores the daunting topic of quantum physics in a comprehensible and visually fas- cinating manner. Ray, a physicist, suffers a near-fatal bicycle crash. Six months later, he is still reflecting upon the event. What intrigues him is how life is composed of an infinite number of parallel realities. In one scene, the screen literally splits into millions of squares, each outlining an alternate universe. It's a thrilling moment, and one that signals an impressive new talent to watch for.
