MOON TALK

The artists find themselves at Samphire Hoe, a piece of land that sits in the sea made from the chalk marl that came from the sea bed when building the Channel Tunnel.

 

They are thinking about the moon and the powerful pull it has on the sea but also themselves.

These are some reaction to the film(s):

'What a wonderful series of films, I thoroughly enjoyed them. 

 

There were so many subtle resonances throughout, humour, thoughtfulness, care and intelligence. And not least, feminist critique! Between you all you manage to spin something very light and fluid, with poetic moments of real magic and strangeness.'

 

 

'I love your fresh approach to film making and the world itself.

Thank you.'

 

'How beautifully thought-provoking.'

'Both disorientating and meditative. Like a tone poem.'

'Thank you! I love the quietness of these films, the valuing of time to think, pauses, and respect for intuition.'

'Just watched your beautiful and poetic Moon Talk film. Loved it!

Listening to factual Helen and fact-amazed Clare and Joanna in the beginning made me smile : )

Loved the megaphone-breathing and the nocturnal/ wind-swept/ torch-lit / lunar drawing exercise.

 

Since you touch upon the maleness of the moon in German...

I will think about some Mondgeschichten (moon stories).

For now, I leave you with four moon-themed German songs (or Lieder)'
