Recent experimental cinema has been inspired by an idea from film theory: the “haptic” realm of feeling, and sensing is marshalled to defeat the excessive certainty and rigidity of conventional, distanced looking. Nazlı Dinçel’s poetic collage reclaims the concept of “fetishism” – in racial politics, but also in intimate relationships – as an open-ended process, mutating and adapting with “the other”. Weaving a web of spoken and written words, colors and darkness, flesh and plants, blood and sex, her film heralds a mode in cinema that moves easily between thought and sensation, obliterating all binary oppositions. (Adrian Martin)
