E.G.

Australia, 1990 (MIFF 1990, Experimental)

Director: Virginia Hilyard

"As the storm passes, the camera descends and moves over textured landscapes, the potential of which we can only guess. A complete understanding of the terrestrial forms is denied, yet the intimate exploration of the camera draws us closer. The camera caresses its subjects as they fade in and out of unconciousness. We enter the slow, seductive dreamworld of sensual and organic abstractions." - Virginia Hilyard
