SHADOW PANIC (1989)


16mm  26 minute experimental drama from As If Productions

Written, Directed and Produced by Margot Nash

 

"I am the dreamer, the redhead, I search for hidden treasure: which fragment would yield the gold, which memory would haunt forever?"

 

" I am the investigator, I watch, I record, I collect evidence: little men who get rich quick, this wilful heritage, this aching land."

 

"I am the fool, the hothead, distracted, temporarily unavailable: in love, out of love, searching for love."

 

Three women, strangers to each other, yet their lives seem inexplicably linked. SHADOW PANIC is a short experimental film about internal and external states of emergency, about personal and collective shadows, about resistance and spirit.

Theatrical release: Australia and UK. Screened theatrically in 1989 in London supporting Chantal Akerman’s feature Toute Une Nuit (1982)
