IN SEARCH OF THE EXILE

2016, 63 mins, HD / Mini-DV / VHS, colour

Using their signature process of blending VHS and HD footage to create images that seem to form and mutate like liquid, In Search Of The Exile is a bold and unique film which transports us to a mythic dimension populated by archetypal characters such as a wanderer, a witch and a red knight. We follow the Wanderer on a journey through mysterious landscapes as he is assailed by enigmatic figures and creatures that dance across the screen – reality is only momentarily graspable before disintegrating into a sea of colour, texture and abstraction.
