Three Wings On The Wind

Paul Couillard

1988, 24:00 minutes, colour, English


Three Wings On The Wind explores writing and storytelling. A writer attempts to tell a fictional story, but memories intrude. The story becomes a letter to an ex-lover, and as the writer stumbles over his own narrative, constantly returning to the beginning to reshape it, other characters emerge. The story unfolds through a series of illusions, deceptions and foils, slowly gathering its own force as the uneasy relationship between the writer and his subject blurs.
