“If poetry can be understood a study of constraint, then I See Infinite Distance… can be understood as an experiment in concentration that speaks of the mobility of thought and the movement of the ocean”.
I See Infinite Distance Between Any Point and Another
I See Infinite Distance Between Any Point and Another is an intimate portrait of poet, painter and philosopher Etel Adnan.
Central to the film, made largely in her Paris apartment, is a reading of extracts from her recently published poem The Sea. The sound of Adnan’s voice and the quiet but ever present ambient noise in her apartment create a film with a powerful, meditative atmosphere. This new film follows Hydra Decapita (2010), which explored the Atlantic slave trade, as the second part of a trilogy reflecting on water as a source of political and cultural power.

A contemplative piece, sound mix was great, the ambient and the incidental.
Most excellent philosophy, beautiful work.
Words hard to follow but I relaxed into it and found it powerful.
