Hands by Ilias Kyriakidis

An experimental short inspired by the Heider and Simmel Shapes Illusion. Behaviorism in hand movements reflects human character and emotion. Themes of sexual attraction, competition and gender hegemonies drive the narrative structure which leave ‘Hands’ open to interpretation.
