Bill Morrison United States, 2012

naokoken's rating of the film The Great Flood

Did not care for Bill Frisell music at first but it became the perfect companion on a constructed journey of archival black and white footage from 1926-1927. Without narration your mind starts to create a story and bring up random associations. Three men in a boat reminds me of Jerome K. Jerome and then Connie Willis's novel To Say Nothing of the Dog. Flooded earthworks reminds me of Robert Smithson's Spiral Jetty.
