“Barrier” (00:02:16) by Alexander Zip, Canada, 2023

Time passes but nothing changes. Opportunities are missed one after the other. Until finally there’s a way out.

Director’s statement

“Barrier” represents myself when I was younger not knowing what I wanted to do with my life, until finally something in my brain had unlocked and had me wanting to dedicate my life to filmmaking. 


Alexander Zip is a Canadian filmmaker. He’s created two films “Barrier” and “Shadow”.

Pebbles Underground is focused on showcasing and promoting experimental, avant-garde, underground, and no-to-low budget projects by artist-humans from all over the world. Absurd, uncanny, witty, humorous, slow-video – all are welcomed, and loved. Pebbles Underground is an independent project not funded by any government or corporation, and we intend to keep it that way. Main source of funding is personal donations from humans organizing the project, who are artists themselves, and the main drive of the project is formed by the energy and involvement of the organizers, and the public.
