The Hidden City (2018) Film Comment 2019
We frequently ask ourselves Are we on earth or in space? It sounds like a profoundly stupid question but director Victor Moreno has created a work that transcends time and place. Where are we? When are we? We aren’t sure. Images seem to have been pulled out of some great lost science fiction epic – except that this is all real.
When I was sent a screening link for TH HIDDEN CITY and it came with strict instructions, I was to watch the film in total darkness with either really good headphones or a high quality speaker system. When I sat down to watch the film the first thing I saw was on screen instructions that said exactly the same thing. I thought it might be a little bit over kill—and then the film started and I realized that this really should be seen in a darkened theater on a huge screen where we can’t look away and can’t get distracted.
I really can’t critique this film other than say it is an awesome experience. If you can see it on a big screen you should.
