The Quarry2002

  • 3.1
THE QUARRY is a silent document of four minutes in the presence of the sublime. This small, quiet 16mm film serves as a testament both to cinema's failure to reproduce the lived moment and to its success in replacing that moment with one that is equally wondrous.

Around 3 minutes of footage pulled from a 6-minute static shot, the film reacting to light and heat in subtle and interesting ways; also a really clear and successful framing of interpretation related to framing. We're given context within the film itself through intertitles, which in turn shapes our engagement with it. It has such an impact because of the sheer simplicity and brevity of the short.
