Tower Bawher (2006)

A short by Theodore Ushev in the style of Russian constructivism. Simple geometric shapes cohere into machines, marching figures and towers which thrust themselves rhythmically across the screen. Music by Russian composer Goergy Sviridov propels frenetic piling into precarious structures, bound to collapse.Tower Bawher NFB film still.
