A film to obliterate the illusions that distract from a real life.
The Pigtail Shadow is a false idol, a false prophet promising a jeweled path
out of reality. Teeming with music, words and imagery, this film induces a
meditative and blissful state. The sweet and nimble reading by Kristin Hersh
places an ethereal tone over a lush and swirling soundtrack. Cerio gently
dismantles the collective subconscious and thoroughly mocks the human drama.
Moments shift between the candied ecstasy of childhood and a teasing cynicism.
Spotlights shine on our shifting superstitions in this cautionary tale.
