Untitled #1 (sun vision)
Canada / 40:00 / 2019 / silent / colour / No dialogue
There were two initial impulses for the film: Turner's almost-not-there paintings of light (whence the bracketed title "sun vision") and the swirling, spirit-filled paintings of Emily Carr. Sun-light-film-

Untitled #1 is a film of liminal thresholds, borders, amorphous states - sky, clouds, fog, lake, snow. A film in motion - camera gestures and emulsion activity. People and seasons pass in the daily repetitive cycles- repetitions and reprises and beginnings again - sameness amidst the fleeting. Blurring, merging, dissolving boundaries,- the world as it is forming and disappearing...Not nothing, everything.

"Everlasting and powerful is the theatre of life, without substance, but forever in motion, forever doing battle with death." Hermann Hesse

"The tree alone resisted our eternal flux. " Virginia Woolf

"...you stand embedded in a substance made of repeated moments run together..." Virginia Woolf

The film speaks to the shifting changes from youthful summer's high activity to faded wintry old age - and calmer waters. Every ending moves to a new beginning.
