A Distant Echo by George Clark, 14 November 2017
Beautifully shot on 35mm film in locations ranging from the Mojave Desert to Leeds Library, A Distant Echo plays with movement and light in deserts across Southern California, exploring myth, identity, culture and the construction of history. The landscapes are layered with a dialogue between explorers, revealing the negotiations between an archaeologist from Cairo with members of a tribe who guard ancient tombs lost in the desert. A Distant Echo features an original choral soundtrack composed by Tom Challenger and performed by the Colne Valley Male Voice Choir.
Followed by Q&A with George Clark.
