The Present Continuous films are a mute meditation guide that focuses attention on the perception of time. The total lack of narrative action in the films wishes to create a hypnotic effect on the viewer. The intense stare of the woman and the soft or sometimes violent wind blowing in the dress and the hair are enough to keep the viewer engaged but not in a deep intellectual process. The moving images communicate through feeling rather than in clear articulated messages.
