2 Shorts films (31min6s)
Adobe Premiere Pro

6 scenes were extracted from both versions (Him and Her) of The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby by Ned Benson (2013), in particular scenes where both main characters shared the same space. The clips were then edited together in two different experiments.

Simultaneity1 is a split screen where the scenes from the two different movies play side by side (Him on the left and Her on the right). This juxtaposition creates a conversation where colours, tones, rhythms and performances contrast.

Simultaneity2 plays a compilation of the 6 extracted scenes on top of the other. The narrative space and soundtracks blend in a short film saturated with audio and visual information.
