Shadowland

Thursday, August 10 at 8 pm

Doors 7:30 pm; $5 admission

Shadowland explores an impact of a Total eclipse of the Sun on the community of eclipse chasers in Faroe Islands. By appropriating the term “shadowland”, a spatiotemporal space when Sun is fully eclipsed, the film depicts the variety of rituals people perform in order to engage with this cosmic event of monumental proportions. In the film Shadowland, the Sun eclipse is contextualised as a symbolic crisis of human existence, and is seen as a liminal space. Filmmakers Lukas Marxt and Vanja Smiljanic in attendance!
