Happy Ending

In 1997 magician/psychic, Uri Geller tried to help Second Division football club Exeter City win a crucial end of season game by placing "energy-infused" crystals behind the goals at Exeter's ground (Exeter lost the game 5–1). Although made famous by his spoon-bending theatrics throughout the 1970’s and 80’s, Geller was unable to ever successfully bend a fork.

A decade later, street artist Moda was briefly hailed as the new Geller until it was revealed his world-first ‘chopstick bending illusion’ was a prank involving a small snake painted in a faux wood-grain pattern.

But beyond the negative crystal energy and rigid fork failures of Geller and the fake snake illusions of Moda, there is still a strong belief that within the mono spectrum of contemporary human endeavours we can reverse our slide down the staircase of a degenerating DNA by harnessing the power of our id.

Both the convex and concave complexity of the bent spoon is explored as a reflection of the duplicitous ambiguity of Geller and Moda; the fine line between artist and conman in a post-truth world.

why we love this film

A perfect combination of art, special effects, pace, rhythm, and dance. Editing has never looked so impressive.
