  • This experimental short film takes its name from the Greek myth wherein Ariadne falls in love with Theseus who seeks to kill the Minotaur in Daedalus' labyrinth. Clever Ariadne gives Theseus a ball of red thread so that he may find his way out of the labyrinth after killing the Minotaur. From one architectural maze to another, the red thread leads the viewer on a journey that weaves in and out of a dream like state, in and out of an occasionally intrusive present reality.
