This Is How it Stars - Shahaf Ram (2014)

"Nesta obra Ram propõe-se dar conta de uma viagem à infância e sua inocência por meio de cassetes antigas de vídeo. O trabalho de rotoscopia realizado para algumas imagens captadas dessas cassetes é tão detalhado que nos deixa em dúvida se realmente estamos perante material previamente criado em vídeo, ou se é ilustração animada a imitar o movimento e os defeitos do vídeo. Uma abordagem que segue no resto do filme, por via de um uso barroco da texturização sobre o qual projeta verdadeiros excessos de exposição que depois dessatura, oferencendo-lhe assim uma tonalidade vítrea, tudo em busca de uma espécie de mundo irreal, fantasmagórico."
