Dry Lights – Experimental Film

Dry Lights, an experimental short film by Xavier Chassaing.

The Toronto based independent filmmaker Xavier Chassaing has created this experimental film using virtual site-specific installations and surreal performances of choreographed lights in organic landscapes. The result is a mind-blowing 3D film that takes you on a nocturnal trip through an electric desert. Like beacons, countless lights flicker in the night. They are buzzing through the desert like fleeting moments or vague memories. They move freely without a specific destination. More below.
