Caolas na Hearadh (The Sound of Harris)

Joshua Bonnetta
2012, Excerpt preview edit

A cinematic study of sound, light, and place, filmed in the Scottish Islands of the Outer Hebrides between the darkest and brightest days of the year. Super 16mm cinematography interwoven with site-specific field recordings, found archival sound, and recorded interviews are used as a departure point to explore the relationship between place, narrative, perception, and the physical environment.
