Luke Fowler
United Kingdom 2014 / 25’

Based on archival television footage and field research carried out for his new film, Luke Fowler examines the history and culture of Britain’s Isle of Barra. The images’ technical state, including over or under-exposure and physical damage testify to the passage of time and betray their age.
