the eyes that stop the train

Jona Pelovska | 2012 | O.V. without dialogue | Canada | 3min | B & W

Synopsis :

Moments of life lived, missed, remembered and forgotten, as glimpsed through the window of a moving train.

A view on thought and vision playing out the film of life - eyes looking through the window of a moving train. This film invokes the process of memory, the way thought snippets interject perception. The moving train => time => the moving image. The beginning of cinema: 'Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat' seen from the POV of the passenger. The passage of time seen through the ears of John Cage: 'Bacchanale' - the sound of life dynamic and chaotic, a thrust forth in time reversible/re-playable unto death.

(The fine edit of this film was inadvertently completed on John Cage's 100th anniversary so, its dating of September 2012 reflects this celebratory moment)
