Essays of a City
Stuart Eagon
Sat Sep 22: 6.45pm

Portland, OR, USA
1h 17m
Festival - Local Sightings Film Festival 2018: Feature Films

Shot in Portland, Oregon over a span of years on Super 16mm black and white film, Essays of a City is a rapturous exploration of the city and of cinema itself in three parts. It begins with a portrait of urban desolation, dominated by architecture and bereft of humanity. The second part is a series of monologues by the people of the city who live in the shadows of the buildings seen in the first. The film concludes with a thesis about how the cinemas unique ability to document time and space differentiates it from other art forms. With an orchestrators sense of tempo and detail, Stuart Eagon has made a constantly surprising film of rare aesthetic and even moral consciousness.

Screens with:
