Brigid McCaffrey at IFFR
Lay Down Tracks
Charming series of portraits of five ordinary Americans whose ordinariness and travelling professions make them special. Pictures and sound go their own way. Soft 16mm images and the cosiness of local radio.
Trypps #6 (Malobi)
Contemporary interpretation of the classic work by Jean Rouch.
The Wet Season
In their very own way, Ben Russell and Brigid McCaffrey record the rapidly changing way of life of the local population in the interior of Suriname.
Let Each One Go Where He May
A reflection on the history of Surinamese migrants and slaves by one of the most prominent experimental film makers of our time, in thirteen takes each lasting ten minutes. He follows two brothers from the outskirts of Paramaribo via forest paths, goldmines and rivers to a Marron village.
Bad Mama, Who Cares
Exceptional portrait of a geologist and her home, somewhere near a remote railway line in the middle of nowhere, among geological faults and the desert winds.
