3:11 / Canada / 2021 / Hand-processed Super 8, black & white / Silent

Synopsis: With a super 8 cartridge I shot moons ago, labelled "unknown", I'm back in the darkroom after some months. Ah, it's the river near home! Turned out to look just how I felt, with muted brown, false horizon, chemical re-balance and frayed nerve.

Director: Sandy McLennan

Artist bio: Sandy McLennan loves wandering just outside his darkroom door (the home or portable one) with cameras and sound recorders. Hand-processed motion pictures sometimes evoke memory of personal and state-of-the-world emotions. He improvises with audio from shoot-location field recordings and sounds associated with creating the work. He leads workshops enabling the experience of slow time and surprise via analogue technology. He has exhibited motion pictures, photography, installation/performance and sound and has received grants from Canada Council for the Arts and Ontario Arts Council.
