Les États généraux du film documentaire 2017 Fragment of a filmmaker’s work: Guy Sherwin Connemara

Guy Sherwin
1980 - Royaume-Uni - Couleur - 31'

A landscape film as a formal structure, reflecting on presence and place. Made while on a visit to Connemara in Ireland, the film is partly a response to the sense of time that the landscape evoked. Time is experienced through the film in a number of ways: traces of past human activity, static shots of long duration, the same places revisited in different conditions of weather and light, exact print repeats of some of the shots, exact repeats of ambient sounds (set against different images), an overall symmetrical shape to the film.
