Sofia Bohdanowicz continues her adventures in autofiction with Point and Line to Plane, with actress and long-time collaborator Deragh Campbell again performing situations plucked from real life experience. The death of a close friend sets a winding journey in motion whose route is the grieving process itself, moving back and forth in time and texture, passing through St. Petersburg, Vienna, New York, and Toronto, and referencing Mozart, Hilda af Klint, and Wassily Kandinsky along the way, whose text gives his name to the film. “The lifeless signs turn into living symbols and the dead is revived.” -JL-
