THE PLACE I WILL HAVE LEFT

by Lena Ditte NISSEN
2016 / 16mm / color-b&w / sound / 1S / 15' 00




The Place I Will Have Left was shot around Rio Catatumbo in Venezuela, the area where most lightnings in the world strike down. The film is about the experience and absorption of something non-digestible. Something foreign and other, that one can not assimilate, that remains within ourselves as a foreign body and provokes rejection reactions. The short and destructive energy of a lightning is delated into a state of stasis as an overreaction.
The film studies dialectical relations between black and white, the human and the non-human, light and shadow, security and insecurity, sound and silence, the known and the unknown, yourself and the other, in an audiovisual minimalist meditation.
