1. Soldiers parade through an empty street, young men pour fuel over fire in an old ruin,
    a shadow figure rises from the black water of a creek long forgotten.
    A seamless combination of archival footage, sonic atmosphere and
    hypnotic tableaux, House of the Gathering lends poetic form to the
    liminal plane between the past and present in a cinematic meditation on
    the history of Berlin and Kitchener, Ontario.

  3. The culture of technology enables the super-human ability to share information from the reaches of outer space to the comfort of our living room.

    Yet for every convenience granted by the accelerated growth of technological advancement we find ourselves reacquainted with a timeless sense of fear and paranoia, an unsettling suspicion that the creation of our greatest freedom may have in fact made us prisoners to our own invention.

    Although technology has granted the ability to blur our perception of space and time, the global spread of technological ubiquity has crystallized our inability to escape the infinite continuum of space/time itself.

    For all of the marvels of our innovation and achievement, have we only drifted deeper into an eternal dark of abstract absurdity?
