Over the last 15 years, Findley has made a handful of films that practically redefine "obsessiveness." Often using a time-intensive technique called "pixilation" in which live action is shot frame by frame, Findley has created a sometimes goofy, sometimes arresting cinematic world in which women's hair can stand straight up, people float on two feet of air, and brunch among friends can mean eating newspapers and the furniture.
