3:57/16mm to video/2009
Hand-processed 16mm film imagery, tinted, toned, and transformed, is combined with memory fragments of a rural past, to create a poetic narrative about place and time. Filmed at the Independent Imaging Retreat (aka the Film Farm) in Mount Forest, Ontario, in 2008. Experimental sound design by Edmund Eagan and featuring my father's voice, who passed away in 1992.
The title, Lot 22, Concession 5 refers to the lot and concession number of my great-grandfather's farm in Westport, Ontario, as recorded in the 1911 census.
