Patient from kathryn wilson on Vimeo.

Dr. Maruyama from Kathryn Wilson on Vimeo.

Combined, these films make up "Scissiparity", a scientific term describing reproduction by fission. This is a process consisting of gradual division into two parts, each of which then becomes a separate and independent organism. The story is of a pair of lovers split in two, now existing in their separate realities yet seeking the other in their own way.

Part I. A woman with amnesia searches for something of great importance, yet she is unaware of what it might be.

Part II. When Dr. Maruyama discovers that his past lover still exists he is determined to find a way to reach her and spend eternity together. He creates an elixir of immortality which he injects in himself and takes other half with him on his journey to find her.

But will he?

I am currently working on the soundtrack, a process which is totally new to me, with my baby who knows a thing or two about that.

Some shots to continue the string of floating images.
