Siobhan Davies and David Hinton in Conversation with Claudia Kappenberg, Part 2

Siobhan Davies, David Hinton, Claudia Kappenberg


In Part 2 of the conversation, Siobhan Davies and David Hinton reflect on the extensive work that informed the first proposal for the film. Key compositional elements are discussed such as the representation of the protagonist through a variety of images from different sources, the decision to represent both the inner and the external world of the protagonist, and, drawing on Étienne-Jules Marey’s chronophotography, the decision to work with minutely choreographed image sequences that are composed from archive material. The conversation explores the forensic work with visual details and the intent to draw the viewer’s attention to the richness of the found film frames. Davies and Hinton also reflect on the use of damage and decay in Chu-Li Shewring’s soundscapes and the roles of film editors Danny McGuire and Matthew Killip.
