Painter/photographer/film-maker Herbert is a genre sui generis. For this film, he photographed the original 16mm material framed by frame with a 35mm camera. On screen, sensuality and sexuality, mythical and profane associations, motion and stationeriness, framing, light, diaphragm and composition vie for supremacy. We see a boy in beautiful back lighting, the girl curling in the sunlight and we experience the existential and aesthetic inevitability of the physical contact. Herbert allows us to share the act of watching and paints his models like a portrait painter. James Herbert (1938, Boston) is known worldwide as a painter, film-maker and maker of music videos.
