Place for Landing2010

  • 3.8
A household landscape of mirrors. A child and its reflection are inscribed in a shadowy lunar patchwork. The camera switches its optical pursuit: the child disappears and a bird emerges. The surveying mirror implodes or explodes into space. Its mottled hallway glass both indicates and becomes a PLACE FOR LANDING. After a series of clever misdirections by the mirror, all is redeemed by a fragment of song in this unsettling haptic illusion.

There is an image of a gauzy cloth blowing lightly in a breeze about half way through this film. A slight shift of light and focus and we see an illustration of a bird printed on the cloth. This is one of the many moments in the film that manages, somehow, to shift our perspective in a wonderful, breath-taking way while maintaining a marvelously consistent tone and emotional resonance. Very moving.
