Synopsis

Traces of unrelenting wind and the edges of harsh light create tangible and illusory shapes within space. Patient observations reveal compositions of light and sand in the Tafilalt region of the Sahara Desert, which used to be the bottom of a prehistoric ocean, as hinted at by the subtle sound composition. Terra Jean Long (1983) lives in Toronto and teaches at the Liaison of Independent Filmmakers of Toronto (LIFT). Her films tell personal stories in a setting that mixes dream, fiction, and reality. She has shown her works at the Edinburgh International Film Festival and the International Documentary Festival Amsterdam, among other festivals.

“The Tafilalt region in the Sahara Desert was once the Rheic Ocean. 350 MYA conjures the o cean’s presence in the landscape, deep time in the folds of space.”
