The Reflecting Pool (1977)

First we see an image of a man about to jump into a pool. The image freezes, make the man suspended in mid-air. Meanwhile, we see reflections in the pool of other people, who are not presently seen around the swimming pool. One of the best video experimental films I've seen, Bill Viola's piece is a mesmerizing piece, where time and space fold into themselves.
