Metamorphosis confronts beauty and loss with powerful visual imagery. The stories of scientists, artists, and activists fighting the global environmental crisis are woven through with stunning imagery to deliver a powerful message of transformation.
Life in a Turkish old folks home is ostensibly the subject of Shevaun Mizrahi’s film, but that is only the entry point into this beautifully layered observational documentary. The residents spend their days taking elevator rides to nowhere, and remembering better, more interesting days. One elderly man recounts the Parisian sex parties of his youth, while another talks about his glory days as a photographer. Meanwhile, just outside the windows of the facility, progress gallops along, fed by the relentless pace and appetite for development.
