| An interesting an dunusal film worth seeing
Empty Suitcases is an experimental feminist film that most people haven't seen or heard of. That is most unfortunate as this is a very interesting and unusual film that deserves to be seen and recognized. The story is not told in a traditional way, but instead uses different methods of narration, including voiceover and on screen text. The film is essentially about women's experiences and representation. I really liked the look of the film and the way the director uses colour, sound, and silence to help enhance the experience. Empty Suitcases is a smart and distinctive film and I would recommend checking it out. It is currently streaming on the Criterion Channel.
