Southern Land




Color, Silent, Found footage on Video, 2014, 8 30 min.

Southern Land is composed of archival film and found video depicting Antarctica. The film quietly charts a poetic journey from the enchantment of discovery, to scientific domestication, through to the slow destruction of colonized land.
