Prime perfect

USA 2016
Duration: 05:55
Directed by: Tom Bessoir
Dialogue language: English

My film was inspired by artist Tony Conrad's 1965 film "The Ficker." The vast majority of the frames in this film are black. You will be sitting in the dark experiencing number patterns. The prime number frames (2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, … 8,123) are white and the perfect number frames (6, 28, 496, and 8128) are red. For the best experience view in a dark room at loud volume. The stroboscopic nature of “prime perfect” provides an intense viewing experience that is too intense for many festivals focusing on narrative films.
