The Sun Itself Sees Not

Switzerland, 1994 (MIFF 1994, Experimental)

Director: Sebastian Dellers

Layers of images of hills, trees, sun and moon converging in movement, the vagaries of exposure flaring the sensitive film emulsion. Using just one roll of 16mm film, run through the camera three times, Dellers has created an impressionistic light charged landscape study.
