"Parallel Carriage" D: Eleanor Suess, GB 2017

Running time: 2’

The film considers the uncanny nature of the experience of passing another train at night, where the windows into the space of that other carriage are pools of light in a black void, offering portals into another world. Individual windows slowed down to 10% of real time draw out the movement of the inhabitants of that parallel carriage. The soundtrack to that “other” space, is produced from the space of the carriage from which the camera, filmmaker, and viewer are located – slowed down to match the images, it becomes an abstract roar, echoing the black void which the windows flow through.
