Lukas Feigefeld’s Hagazussa
Hagazussa, directed by Lukas Feigefeld in 2017, immediately distinguishes itself through its formal choices. There is minimal dialogue. The music is mostly just stretches of tones and chords that rumble underneath the images. The camera is slow and distant lingering in the forest like a creature hiding and observing. Even with its stripped-down set of elements what is left is rich and thick with atmosphere. There are very few characters, very few locations, just an observant eye that seems to wonder about what it is seeing.
