Composed of fixed scenic views bathed in golden shades of sunset, A JOURNEY TO AVEBURY evokes the solitary experience of a walk. The film is a pure expression of Derek Jarman’s enduring attachment to England’s landscape and heroic past. Avebury’s magnificent Neolithic monuments appear as dark masses straddling earth and sky. Their silence is heard throughout the film.

Lovely, but a little distancing, with the silence, jagged cuts, limited palette, non-linearity, darkness, as well as the length considering those factors.
a film for painters. Dirt and scratches in the medium contribute to the textures. Thank you, Fandor
Great capture of sunset sky.
