To Pour Milk Into A Glass

Many of David Lamelas's works are exercises designed to test how meaning is constructed in film. "I wanted to find symbols for 'container' and 'contents' - to represent how the camera frames - and what is shown on screen. ..I decided to use a glass and milk. The eight sequences end with... the glass being shattered and the milk splattering all over the table, which implies that there is no way to contain information".
