Love in the White City

by Clive Holden
Canada / 7:08 / 2004
sound / colour

“Made with a camera the size of a deck of cards carried in my pants pocket for one year, the ‘White City’ beckons, repulses and quakes with portent. The original poem was commissioned by CBC Radio in 2002 on the theme, 'Love in Winnipeg' – it began at 3 am in mid-February at 30 below, on a drive home through an empty, wind-swept, snowbound city. An audience member in my home town asked me why this film in particular was so dark, so sad. I said I didn’t find it to be so, but I wish I’d said something to her about the beauty to be found in desolation.”

Music by Christine Fellows.
