Vanessa Hüppins explored space through the use of sound in Houdini, and the short film could be described as an experimental reaction to reality. We are in a bar, people are talking. One by one, audio tracks are removed, shifting our perception of what is happening. Little by little, the bar becomes a screen surrounded by two musicians who improvise in response to the images. Vanessa Hüppins plays with the very structures of filmmaking. She moves and removes the layers of what makes a film, to express how perceptions shape our sense of reality.  Like the musicians she collaborates with, she works with intuition and make films with a creative and reactive posture.
