Zabriskie Point (Redacted)

Film expérimental | hdv | couleur et n&b | 27:40 | Royaume-Uni | 2013

Synopsis - inspired by a visit to Zabriskie Point ? a scenic tourist spot in Death Valley, California ? this film re-visits and re-imagines in the contemporary Antonioni?s 1970 MGM film of the same name. Aligning with Antonioni`s stated intentions ? to produce a work as "an idea in landscape" ? Zabriskie Point (Redacted) enacts a programme of visual and social research for the earlier film at one remove from the dramatic narrative. ?I wanted to ?play the stranger? with the original film. I`ve put the story to one side and concentrated on other aspects of the movie - the landscapes, the documentary footage used and the kind of material that was used as research for the work. The result is a peek at ideas of site, spatiality and the ?spectatorial?.? (Stephen Connolly) Sources and references for the film ? see here
