Formless from Pang Sern Yong on Vimeo.
Form is emptiness and emptiness is form.
Form is not emptiness and emptiness is not form.
- Heart Sutra.
The film above is a 2-minute assignment I have to do as part of my studies in university. We had to utilise a certain film theory called Eisenstein Montage to make a 2-minute video, and the above video is titled 'Formless', inspired by the idea of emptiness in Buddhism. So how do you think the film approaches the Buddhist theme of emptiness?
