28.IV.81 (Bedouin Spark)


"Approximates a small child's fantasy world in the dark. In a series of close-ups, the nightlight is transformed into a meditative star-spangled sky. An improvisation, edited inside the camera and shot on a single reel. The stars swirl in silence." -IFFR

28.IV.81 (Bedouin Spark) "...display[s] a concern with textures of light as well as the capacity of the human imagination to will celestial entities out of the relatively impoverished materials at hand. (Call them The Potted Plant of Life.) 28.IV.81 (Bedouin Spark) (2009) is a lovely miniature edited in-camera, in which Harris manipulates light around a child's mobile so that a hanging nightlight with plastic silver stars becomes a glinting ersatz sky." -Michael Sicinski, Cinema Scope Magazine
