UFOs

2.5
5.6/10 IMDB

UFOs involved developing special color filters used on an-optical bench in reshooting original rolls, but to heighten the color saturation exponentially, black frames were inter-edited so that the eyes’ cones were constantly refreshed, the saturation never diminished, and there was a shift in the brain’s alpha rhythm so that observers had conflicting reactions. A film breakthrough that literally created an individualized viewing experience.
