Journal – Rooftop Short Impression

The video Rooftop Short from Evelin Stermitz is a short video of a woman on a rooftop flickering in and out of frame. The dissonant music with voice and string instruments has an unsettling effect on the screen giving a feeling of instability and movement. The roof itself is a plain gray with many small satellite dishes spread out across its surface facing out into the city’s skyline. The film perhaps describes the signal of people digital channels symbolized by the satellite dishes in the open air, appearing for a few seconds before disappearing again. Without a conclusion it appears to be a story that is unfinished hence the choice in sound.
