WE'RE GOING HOME is a 10.5 minute experimental film originally shot in
June 97, at a Philip Hoffman's film retreat in rural Ontario. The film was
made in the memory of Marian McMahon, an experimental Canadian filmmaker who died of cancer in the fall of 1996.
We are going Home has been hand-processed, solarized, chemically-treated,
and optically-printed to invoke a surreal mood for the wanderings of
several characters through a pastoral setting. Rhythmic color and tonal
shifts in the film emulsion give life to the physical landscape, which
comes to represent an internal terrain of the subconscious. Three main
characters act in parallel universes, attempting to but never able to
intersect. Characters are ever equally conscious at the same time. When
one finds another, she is either buried in the sand or asleep under a tree.
Consciousness is always singular.
