GHOSTS and GRAVEL ROADS [Almost complete]
GHOSTS and GRAVEL ROADS is in the final stages of post-production. This has been a two year process filled with amazing experiences – traveling to remote areas of the Saskatchewan prairies, meeting interesting people, and capturing beautiful images. The master image and sound should be complete by mid-February. The premiere is scheduled for March.
An inventory of lost memories and places, the sun bleached landscape of Saskatchewan serves as a metaphor for displacement, a framing of emptiness and absence. Traveling to forgotten towns and channeled through old family photographs the camera catalogues the haunting remnants of the past, frail monuments and communities laid bare, broken under economic collapse. Under the weight of the prairie skies a visceral, personal encounter is revealed in the solace of open space.
