Fierce Tears

Ross Turnbull

1998, 06:30 minutes, colour, English


Family footage, abstract film, stills, digital effects and a haunting piece of chamber music combine to evoke the longing of memory and the renewal of family ties. Fierce tears is an elegy, perhaps even a lamentation and yet a celebration too, of the cycle of young and old, of death and birth.
