Nocturne is a twenty minute film which attempts to move viewers on an emotional and intellectual level by its exploration of nocturnal space. The film diverts from traditional notions of narrative, character and drama, in order to emphasize the mysterious journey of a young woman through five intensely cryptic spatial encounters within the landscapes of Toronto’s ravine parklands. Psychological liminal space is explored and represented through careful framing and an intensely evocative sound design, underscoring overall feelings of (unknowable) urgency and anticipation.
