Lines from the diary of Theodore Kaczynski, aka the Unabomber, during his stay in a cabin outside the city of Lincoln in Montana. The film is shot from the same angle trough the four seasons and featuring a voiceover from James Benning.
This film is highly recommended for painters, Buddhists and zen meditators. It is NOT for general audiences. There is no story, no camera movement, just 13 beautifully composed shots of lakes over a ten minute period, most with sound-I'd guess recorded at the time of shooting. It's certainly an an unusual experience -and one which I found quite rewarding- to see how much a body of water can change in a short period of time. This was a deeply contemplative experience, probably not one easily replicated at home with all the daily distractions around. I loved it and would happily see more work by this artist. Not for everyone, though.
