If you listen . . . you can see them.
This experimental documentary, shot on the Hawaiian island of Molokai, offers a haunting reflection of remorse and remembrance within the conflicting framework of “paradise.” The film’s digital manipulations of sound and image challenge conventional notions of the role of the documentary storyteller and reality. The resulting questions are posed by a reliably unreliable narrator, Moira, a digital construction with a backstory through whose “eyes” and “voice” this visual poem unfolds.
The film is accepted for screening at Ethnografilm 2021, and is currently under other film festival consideration.
