Shards


Rental Format(s): 16mm film

Fragments of scenes from disparate rituals, a Sundance ceremony at Crow Nation, collecting reed grasses, a man shaving, grilling, contrasting western and non-western culture, personal themes emerge suggested by glass breaking and leaves blowing. The film parallels fragmentation and fragility through explorations that question ideas of wholeness and reconstruction in the film form.

"Lightly processed field recordings fuse disparate strips of saturated 16mm film into an observational diary. The...scenes draw unexpected corollaries, limning film's possibilities as a momentary medium not bound to a monolithic narrative." - Jackson Scarlett
