Hinterlands (2016)


Through a structuralist and simultaneously ambiguous form, the image's reality treads closer to the abstract, leaving the sunset and trees behind. As we enter the image's gloaming, it reveals its true eye: reality's pure haptic energy, where there is nothing but sonorous light, and the dregs of the Unknown.

Hinterlands was later nominated in Sight & Sound's Best films of 2016 Poll by film historian, Nicole Brenez.
