Why Watch? Because sometimes things that don’t make sense are the only things that make sense.
Landon has talked about cinematic synesthesia before (the creation of a sense impression relating to one sense by stimulation of another sense). Smelling colors and seeing sounds make for a troubling neurological disorder, but the phenomenon can be seen in film too.
Perhaps it can’t be seen more vividly than in the aptly-titled short film from Terri Timely (the pseudonym of directing pair Ian Kibbey and Corey Creasey). A family goes about their nightly routine. A mother cooks a swath of newspapers into an origami turkey, a father sits down to eat a good book, a boy records the colors that LPs smell like to him, and another hooks up the available produce to the loud speakers.
What comes out is insane and truly incredible. This is imagination working over time.
