A Black Hole is a Black Hole in the Ground

a film by Sophia Feuer & Tyler Macri

Experimental Documentary 
2018, 12min, 16mm Color

Concerning three groups of children from disparate upbringings, A Black Hole is a Black Hole in the Ground intimately depicts the strange, ephemeral realities that arise on evenings of play, when dimensions of space and time, not fully cemented by adulthood, begin to dissolve. Parking lots, hen houses, and brownstone apartments become the dwellings of many strange creatures; coyotes are rendered forest spirits, neighbors as martians, and night crawlers as flesh-eating meteorite worms. Employing sci-fi, documentary and ethnography techniques, a state of mind particular to early youth is sublimated - weight is lent to shadows as vast as space, ripe with discoveries both minuscule and immense.

"An honest, ambitious, and insightful look at the play, curiosity and violence of childhood." - 2019 Images Festival Award Jury
