SP 10 Split-Screen - Space and Perspective


There are times when conventional film formats are simply inadequate for portraying a particular story or feeling. Experimenting with split screens, this program’s filmmakers have achieved astonishing creative results covering the full range from drama to comedy. Split screen proves ideal here for depicting scenarios like a break-up, neighbors cursing the paper-thin walls that separate them, or a thief whose escape truly knows no boundaries.
