Haynes + Negative Space (2018)

Todd Haynes + Negative Space from Allain Daigle on Vimeo.

Haynes’ films are dollhouses. His characters live in artificial worlds, worlds full of negative space that visualize feelings that his characters cannot express. Through these negative spaces, Haynes expresses the ambivalence of the modern home and modern life.
