Time Away

Canada, 2006 (MIFF 2007)

Director: Aubriand (Carole O'Brien)

This assemblage takes as much care with its sound as its imagery. An ode to 'passing through' that recycles found footage of travel and movement, teasing out, through its breaks and entrances, a sustained personal narrative of loss and longing.
