About the Tri-Alogue Series

By presenting three filmmakers' work simultaneously within a single 16mm frame, our Tri-Alogue series offers a complexity of perspective that undermines the omniscient cinematic gaze and evokes a deeper relational mystery.

Collaborating to subdivide a 16mm filmframe into thirds, Caryn Cline, Linda Fenstermaker and Reed O’Beirne present their separately-shot-segments simultaneously within one spatial plane. From the interplay of these three points of view, emerges a cinematic conversation based on a horizontal compositional logic within the shared frame. This combined connotative-relationship between the subframes evokes a spectacle of fractured spatial and temporal perspective.

We chose the term, "tri-alogue" as mashup up of "analogue", "dialogue" and "triple".


Filmmaker Team Details

Caryn, Linda and Reed are a filmmaking team representing three different generations who collaborate to challenge the notion of a film's single-authorship. To that end, we have created this series of “Tri-Alogue” films where we present our separately-shot-segments simultaneously within the same spatial frame.
