Solitude

Directed by Lois Siegel
Canada, 1978 (avant-garde, 10 minutes, colour, English)
Video (SAW Video)

Film Description:
"Solitude is a film about the nature of the individual in the world as he moves from one space to another, shadowed by structures. The medium is film and dance, but the film is not specifically a dance film. Special effects, such as high speed photography and colour separation, are included only as a means to study form. The film avoids any real descriptive realisation of solitude. Instead it studies the ambiance or interior being of solitude."
