Director Bahman Motamedian explores surreal territory in video format to expose the absurd and irrational. The character’s surreal world has great visual impact for three reasons ­minimal staging, performers engaged in delightfully absurdsituations,and scenes dislocated from any logical context.Most experimental work is known for purposely breaking with the classic narrative line, stylized shooting and continuity editing, but in Aquarium, the use of the classic form in the service of the surreal and experimental, creates a hyper-real film space for characters to dwell in.­
