Jennifer Reeves

2009, 16mm, 7 minutes

Eight super-8 film years condensed into seven eye-popping minutes. A dreamer moves through landscapes to far seas -over tracks, winding roads, skies and waters- a journey of flight and fancy. The animals are watching, the chicks are chasing sunsets and dancing with sharks. A 98-year old grandmother reflects on life, while the 38-year old director looks back on her own. Dedicated to my late grandmother and to my late father, whose trumpet playing and voice enter the free-associative collage soundtrack.
