WHERE I DON'T MEET YOU

Through the formal and psychological association of figurative cinematography and textual sequence, a filmic atmosphere unfolds in a "non-place" recalling a moment lost between two time-spaces.

“As suggested by its title, Where I Don’t Meet You is a film about space - or more accurately, negative space; the void between things and people, process and meaning, images and sound. Shot on Super 8, its first half uses scratched and scuffed film leader to get at this absence, twitching away to an analogue drone. Midway, a pair of hands emerge, held apart in plea or indecision, and as the soundtrack bursts into scuzzy euphoria and melancholic diaristic text, the film takes on a deeper emotional resonance, where materiality and meaning have merged as one.”
