“The tonalities and timbres of these striking visual images
have ample time to seep deep within our soul." - The Wire
"Intriguing, sophisticated and captivating." - The London Film Review
"A seductive blend of film and sound" - Chris Watson
Still but full of movement; quiet but full of sound; nothing is quite as it seems... Mirror Lands is an absorbing and dreamlike portrait of The Black Isle, an ever-changing peninsula in the Highlands of Scotland supporting a delicate balance between nature, industry and rural life.
Contrasting local voices intermingle, rising and falling across lingering shots of land, sea and air, sharing personal memories, feelings and experiences of this curious place. Sounds of the natural and man-made world are woven together with Lyken and Dove's original score creating a unique audio visual experience that explores the complex relationships between people and place.
