Three creatures travel great distances on a lonely pilgrimage. “Remission,” directed by John Charter, is a mixed-media experimental film loaded with stunning visuals and potent abstract imagery. According to the film's logline, the figures are manifestations of an unknown solider’s war trauma — we have a dead body, a ceremony, a processional. But the film mostly refrains from exposition or explanation, instead focusing on setting, mood, and movement. And it’s carried by the incredible art design and costuming by co-writer, Paul Kaiser. -KA.
