  •  The Splits combines documentary and narrative in a montage of motion and sound. The camera documents a group of twenty people gathered in a hall to perform. The cast includes real-life performers whose skills range from the mundane to the extraordinary: a hula hooper, a singer, a pizza dough thrower, speed skippers, tap dancers, gymnasts and dog trainers. Two men make salami, a woman gets a haircut and someone eats too many hotdogs. Hrabluik’s editing creates an exquisite corpse, connecting the performers as their bodies tap out a spellbinding rhythm.
