I See Infinite Distance Between Any Point And Another

14 April - 27 May 2012

I See Infinite Distance Between Any Point and Another is an intimate portrait of poet, painter and philosopher Etel Adnan.

Central to the film, made largely in her Paris apartment, is a reading of extracts from her recently published poem The Sea. The sound of Adnan’s voice and the quiet but ever present ambient noise in her apartment create a film with a powerful, meditative atmosphere. This new film follows Hydra Decapita (2010), which explored the Atlantic slave trade, as the second part of a trilogy reflecting on water as a source of political and cultural power.
