William Farley’s “The Walk” Premieres at Mill Valley Film Festival

Posted October 6th, 2011 in Announcements, Events and Screenings, News / Events

New Film by Canyon Member William Farley Premieres this week

A great review by Sam Whiting can be found in the San Francisco Chronicle this week:

“As a fine art photographer, William Farley’s subject matter is the low fog at 3 a.m., lit by the street lamps of the deserted city.

A dark obsession like that needs a light diversion, so leaving his home in the Bayview district, Farley searched out a quiet park for walking. Over time, the diversion became a bigger obsession than the nocturnal obsession he needed diverting from.

The ensuing film, “The Walk,” which will be premiered Oct. 8 and 11 at the Mill Valley Film Festival, is mesmerizing in that the viewer never knows where he is, other than on a dirt road that bends around an oak tree on a lake somewhere. The shifting focus from wide to narrow gives it the mood of a nature film Robert Redford might narrate.”
