Skhizein

Skhizein (Greek) – To split

This unusual little film follows a man who was hit by a 150-ton meteorite and shifted 91 cm to the left, or rather, he relates to the physical world 91 cm to his right. Needless to say, this isn’t an easy thing to adjust to.

Directed by Jeremy Clapin.

Skhizein – Jérémy Clapin

Struck by a 150-ton meteorite, Henry is knocked precisely 91 centimeters askance of himself. Jérémy Clapin wrote, directed, and animated this tale of the adjustments required when living out of kilter from yourself and the rest of the world.
