A fresh review of North of South, West of East, the multi-channel narrative film that premiered here at Ballroom as part of our 2011 fall visual arts exhibition, AutoBody. The write-up also features a brief Q&A with director Meredith Danluck, excerpted below.
“The idea came out of being couch-ridden with a broken leg on a TV-viewing binge while reading about durational cinema from the 1970s,” said Danluck over a phone conversation to her home base, New York City. “I wanted to see all the characters outside of their dramatic moments, the dead time and spaces in between became interesting and full of potential.”
