Terra Long: Parallax Visions

Filmmaker in attendance. 16mm + HD projection.

Terra Long is an independent filmmaker and educator. She creates tapestry like works that draw on natural history, deep time, and the space between the real and the imaginary. Her works have screened at festivals and micro cinemas all over the world including the Edinburgh International Film Festival, International Documentary Festival Amsterdam, CPH DOX, in the Wavelengths section at Toronto International Film Festival, and the Images Festival in her hometown of Toronto. She is also a member of the Independent Imaging Retreat Collective (Film Farm). 

Parallax Visions
Parallax is a displacement in the visible position of an object viewed along two different lines of sight. This program consists of works that live in the space between the subject and the object infinitely tracing distances and alternating views. Whether this approach is mediated through an archive, the landscape, collecting clues, or tracking the moon, the artists seem to suggest that negotiating disjunctive perception is also how we remember.
