A fixed camera observes the city from the perspective of a mysterious time and place. Through opaque glass brick, it observes the movements of the city-people walking and shifting patterns of light. The emotive and effective use of sound in this work creates a potent and evocative exploration of memory and the subconscious. The sounds of children at play echo from afar as horses on cobblestone echo from another era. The sounds merge with a piano score as pedestrians and machinery add their own chorus, subsiding to syncopation of rain and thunder-all to create a kaleidoscopic experience of a city from beneath.

Festival(s): Athens International Film + Video Festival, Festival International du Films sur l'Art (Montréal).
