“Where does time reside?” Daniel is preparing for college and considering the paths he could take, while Quincy becomes a father. Weaving imagery of life with the surrounding environment, director RaMell Ross creates spectacular visions; the sun behind a tree, shimmering into black smoke rising from a fire; a toddler’s eye-view; people spending time – those in-between moments that seem insignificant, but often lay the foundations of memory. Exploring the passage of time, Ross creates a sense of how the past exists in layers within the present. With hypnotically beautiful imagery, and a warm, playful relationship with his subjects, this is a lyrical and poetic observation of life in Hale County on the Black Belt region of Alabama.
The screening on Fri 18 Jan was followed by a director Q&A.
