Last February 2nd in Marienbad
Film and Media Studies
This is the third prize winner for the 2012 Mashup contest celebrating student creativity in video and multimedia. Both films [Marienbad and Groundhog Day] take on the resemblance of a puzzle or game but in extremely different ways. Marienbad is a highly dramatic piece that manipulates space, time, and memory in order to subvert as well as emphasize its cinematic form. On the other hand, Groundhog's Day takes the comedic route in a man who has to lives the same day over and over again. [This video] makes a new game out of the juxtaposition of the films by recreating Groundhog's Day in a intense, dramatic fashion.
