The Lighthouse takes the notion of a look-out and turns it into a "look-in" in this dizzy, hypnotic film. Video Kim Collmer. Music Jeff McGrory.
The Lighthouse begins with view of the horizon with our point of view tracing the perimeter of a lighthouse. The film is absent of the physical lighthouse, and instead attempts to position the viewer in the role of the lighthouse, by placing them in the center. The longer one looks out towards the sea, the more vision becomes blurred and eventually inverts itself inward towards cellular abstraction and also into a meditative visual state. We dissolve into light and water, eventually going deeper into the abstraction and in a sense into our deeper selves. The term „lighthouse“ also makes reference to film itself in that the cinema is a house of projected light.
