The Black Tower
John Smith
1985-1987 - Royaume-Uni - Couleur - 24'

“In The Black Tower we enter the world of a man haunted by a tower which, he believes, is following him around London. While the character of the central protagonist is indicated only by a narrative voice-over which takes us from unease to breakdown to mysterious death, the images, meticulously controlled and articulated, deliver a series of colour coded puzzles, jokes and puns which pull the viewer into a mind-teasing engagement.” (Nik Houghton, Independent Media, 1987)
