Program Description

A mirror is shattered by a man walking across it. The torso of a man is torn through, as if projected onto a piece of paper. A man's upside-down face is "pulled away" to reveal a right-side-up face that is covered in blackness. A hand vanishes into a mass of black goo. The piece is approximately three and one-half minutes in length.
