Pyramid

Movie • 2014 • Horror  

Report
Pyramid is a single screen work on Abraham Maslow's theory on the hierarchy of human needs filmed through the rhythms and choreography of middle class South England. Filmed in color and b&w on 16mm film, it continues Salmon's interest in the performance of the artist/cinematographer within both spontaneous and constructed situations and incorporates methods developed by various movements within documentary and avant-garde history. Using an array of sounds, music and conversation as well as silence, Salmon constructs an abstract documentary which both develops and challenges the themes presented in Maslow's theory as well as her own interest in human iconography, stereotype and domestic rhythm. The image of Maslow's pyramid and his pragmatic dissection of human needs and possible motivations provide a system of organization for the family and a philosophical framework for the video.
This movie contains 27 potentially triggering events.

Right in the opening scene there's a dog barking and the camera man asks for a shotgun, but that's it

Some (undead?) cats are shot at and thrown around, but they are very fake looking, and it is in self-defense because they are vicious little kitties.

No, but there are some (undead?) cats throughout the movie and they get shot at and thrown around. They are very fake looking CGI sphinx cats, so it doesn't look upsetting, but they do make some scared/hurt cat sounds.

No, but there is a scene where someone unconsensually records a woman undressing in her tent. So there's sexual harassment, but no sexual assault.

I guess you could classify it as sad.
Spoiler!!!!








It looks like the main character is going to get out and she's safe, and the last shot is the creature attacking a child who seemed to be coming to save her. It looks like neither the main character nor the child survive.
