DirectorRobert Beavers, Tiane Doan na Champassak, Nick Collins, Jean Dubrel, Shambhavi Kaul, Chris Kennedy
Beginning with the ruins of a Greek Byzantine church and ending with trance rituals in Burma, this programme sketches a trajectory of shifting perspective and iconographic reference.
Trissákia 3, Nick Collins (9 minutes):
The beauty of the ruins of a thirteenth-century Greek church is heightened by supernal light and shadow play.
Brimstone Line, Chris Kennedy (10 minutes):
Three freestanding grids placed along the Credit River in rural Ontario (reminiscent of the Dürer Grid used by Renaissance draughtsmen to achieve accurate proportions) become devices through which the stationary camera frames the landscape and creates perspective.
Listening to the Space in my Room, Robert Beavers (19 minutes):
A moving testament to existences past and present, this portrait of a space once inhabited by filmmaker Robert Beavers adheres to a precise, yet enigmatic sound-image construction that carries rare emotional weight.
Mount Song, Shambhavi Kaul (9 minutes):
A strange yet familiar sense of place dominates Shambhavi Kaul's deceptively disorienting and visually entrancing Mount Song. As a wild, foreboding gust courses through the night, a subdued elegance is brought forth from past cinema spectacles, whose generic, albeit highly suggestive set constructions remain lodged in our imaginary.
Natpwe, the feast of the spirits, Tiane Doan na Champassak / Jean Dubrel (31 minutes):
An immersive, sooty black-and-white documentary about an annual Burmese trance ritual, with echoes of Jean Rouch and David Lynch.
