MeM#7—3) In Search of Lost Time (Marta Renzi. Estados Unidos.) 8:44 min. from Movimiento en Movimiento on Vimeo.
A man and a woman inhabit the same surreal location though not, apparently, at the same time. Marta Renzi directs this black-and-white meditation on memory and absence, joined by long-time collaborator Charles Caster-Dudzick (camera), as well as Aislinn MacMaster & David Thomson (performers). With a nod to the soundscore for Andrei Tarkovsky’s Stalker and the location of La Chambre by Joelle Bouvier and Regis Obadia.
Camera: Charles Caster-Dudzick
Performers: Aislinn MacMaster & David Thomson
