About the film
A Flat Abstraction is a short, ambient film shot and released by Jim Elton in April 2013. The first of two visual portraits (followed by Cloud Dance), A Flat Abstraction shows aspects of the living areas in the so-called "Wingless Towers" building in Plymouth. The otherwise-silent film is set to a piano score by Tom Menary, titled "Abstraction (for Piano)". Both the film and its original score were released on 18th April, 2013, with Cloud Dance released a day later.
