Girl: Gradiva Couzin

This film "plays" with language and history in a naive way, weaving, in the words of a child, a disappearing landscape into the fabric of a film of numbers, sounds, and textures. "There's a paradox at the center of Couzin's work, in that for all of the wariness of form and order her films express, they remain tightly organized, elegant formal studies. ... SALVE is her most paradoxical film and, I think, her richest. A young girl's discovery of 'the relationships between the quantities' - of geometry, volume, time, and numbers - is seen as an ineffably tragic development." - Dave Kehr
