One Day

Australia, 2005 (MIFF 2005, Australian Showcase)

Director: Julian Knowles

One Day
This is a drifting, hypnotic meditation on movement. Director, composer, sound and video artist Julian Knowles has an extensive background in Australian underground music, including his stint with experimental sound art ensemble Social Interiors. He has used the raw elements of this work to sculpt the kind of visual essay much loved by fans of Chris Marker and Chris Petit. "[One Day] seeks to find new relationships between sound and image in a cinematic context. The entire material for the work was generated from a 12-hour drive from Sydney down the south coast of New South Wales. "The vehicle was fitted with an array of video cameras and microphones, which captured a multi-dimensional perspective of the landscape and soundscape of the entire journey. The final work was then created through subtle editing and transformations of the field-captured materials, uncovering the poetry and musicality of the vehicle as it moves through the landscape, an exploration of travel as a kind of 'inner cinema'." - Julian Knowles Julian Knowles will be attending the festival.
