Alexi Manis, Shutter, Canada, 2010, 8 min
Shutter suggests the uncanny atmosphere and changing light on the day of a total eclipse.

Timoleon Wilkins, Drifter, USA, 1996-2010, 24 min
Fragments of the filmmaker’s life, home and travels, recorded over a 14-year period. “The glories of atmospheric light and colour, inward soul-drifting, and the literal sensation of drifting within and through each shot and cut.” (TW)

David Gatten, Shrimp Boat Log, USA, 2010, 6 min
“300 shots, 29 frames each, alternating between a notebook listing the names of shrimp boats that frequent the mouth of the Edisto River and images of these same boats.” (DG)

Rebecca Meyers, Blue Mantle, USA, 2010, 35 min
Blending 19th century American literature with factual accounts, illustrations and music by Debussy and Wagner, this oblique portrait of a shipwrecked coastline conveys the vastness and majesty of the ocean. A song to the sea, and a commemoration of those who have risked their lives off the treacherous Massachusetts shore.

Inger Lise Hansen, Travelling Fields, Norway, 2009, 9 min
In the third film of her ‘inverted perspective’ trilogy, Hansen turns her camera on the North West Russia, creating monumental and uncanny vistas from these barren wastelands.
