The String Game is an unnerving mediation on the journey towards Nirvana. Ink paintings bloom and disintegrate away as they illustrate lyrics about stoicism. The film is a physical/digital hybrid fusing stop motion and digital effects. The filmmakers worked in close collaboration with poet and singer Kassie Carlson, incorporating her line drawings amid a shifting plane of time-lapse ink.
