Circle of time

The gradual flow of time, perceived through nature, takes one back to a time when play was our only preoccupation. Two boys are seen engrossed in their sifting activities, as so many other children have done before them. There is no need to worry, to manage time or to plan. Notes of nostalgia echo throughout the work, rekindling our memories of a childhood that has slipped through our fingers. This narrative is meant as accompaniment during a stressful procedure; audio-visuals to hold on to when anxiety levels rise. The dynamics within the film are created by the gently rotating movement of the hand-held camera superimposed over linear lines. The camera moves along flowing through cloud, tree and water to stop and focus, linger on the children playing, only to pick up its movement again leading one away to another place.
