The Correspondence

Robert Hamilton

1988, 08:07 minutes, B&W, none


The Correspondence is a video that explores the physical and psychological distance between a couple. The sensibility of the video is that of a silent film; a gritty black and white animation accompanied by an original score for the piano. For the purposes of animation, the sequences were shot on film, then transferred to video to enhance the sensual quality of film.

The Correspondence is an experimental narrative that is an entertaining and dark abstraction of the inner thoughts of two people unsure of their future together.
