An autumnal film, trees shedding leaves, birds singing whilst blissfully unaware of the drama unfolding below. The unrelenting gaze of the camera, storytelling captured in minute gestures and reflections. And as masterfully as the scene is set, time shifts again, leaving us with only a memory. With two magnificent films in 2010 (Voodoo screens in Sandro Aguilar’s short profile programme), there’s plenty more yet to come.
