This harrowing adaptation of an acclaimed play dramatizes the transcripts of actual black box recordings made in the cockpits of six flights that ultimately crashed, capturing the tension, courage, and, finally, sheer terror of pilots and crew members facing impending death. The use of 3D lends an almost otherworldly quality to what is both a hair-raisingly intense and hauntingly spiritual experience.

Anaglyphic images of a police cruiser, a basement rave, and a Montreal freeway collide in this playful, perception-altering short, inspired by 19th-century painting and the music of Tchaikovsky and Stravinsky.
