THE 11TH CONTINENT

Synopsis

While meandering through country fields, a girl and a boy begin following after an unidentified, mysterious being that eludes their search. A locked red gate in the midst of the hedgerows proves to be a portal to other landscapes; when they unlock it, the youngsters find they are able to travel to other realms, both real and otherwise. Incantations, spontaneous rituals, and quotidian objects newly imbued with significance – these are the tools that enmesh the children in a strange milieu, where the sacred and the profane seem to be engaged in an ongoing dialogue. Endless Tail relies on improvisation, the interplay between sound and image, found-footage compositions, and bizarrely ironic title cards to construct a fairy-tale-like universe that is remarkably imaginative as it basks in childlike playfulness.
