Lily in the Grinder
a short film about existence
directed by Michael Morgenstern
Ryan lives in Brooklyn and looks for a job, maybe in social media or something.
He sits around the house, wanders New York City, and questions the
point of his existence. Bridging experimental and narrative form,
Lily is like attending a live string quartet concert that explodes
into the visual field. The film flits to the future
and past and back while an original score,
written in the style of B¨¦la Bart¨®k,
tells its own piece of the story.
Draped in kaleidoscopic imagery
and crackling with dark humor,
Lily in the Grinder probes sex,
death, and time.
a human life
is a static
that cannot be said to truly begin or end?
What if we already are everything we will ever be?
