Liza May Post (Dutch, b. 1965) creates film sets, choreographs scenes, directs actors as she films, and produces still photographs from her movies. In her existentialist film Under, five people confined in a cellar-like space attempt—unsuccessfully—to communicate with each other. Of her spare prints, Post says: “In films you are required to sit through hours of detail, but the feeling of a film can be captured in a single minute. I am interested in that one moment.”
