DEPARTURE

by SJ. RAMIR
2007 / Mini DV / color / sound / 1S / 3' 28




In his short video piece Departure, SJ.Ramir explores both emotional and geographical landscapes of isolation. An anonymous figure sets out on a journey - moving through a harsh and sunburnt terrain, towards an unknown destination. Pixels are enhanced in the video work by the use of custom-made lens filters, to create pointillist textures, and eliminate superfluous detail.

Also screens as a trilogy with video works; Man Alone and Our Voices Are Mute.

Official selection for the 38th International Film Festival Rotterdam 2009.
