Mor'vran Regie Jean Epstein


Mor’vran has a recorded sound score, but no dialogue. The title cards provide digestible chunks of information about the archipelago of Breton islands, but also drift into poetry that is closer to the lyrical spirit of the images. Lighthouses are called the eyes of the sea, hinting at their centrality in Epstein’s vision, their lenses and searching beams offering a heroic metaphor for the camera.
