Light Is Calling

This is cinematic poetry. Light Is Calling, 2003, by Bill Morrison. It has nothing to do with Katrina, but it sings what is in my heart when I lift my camera up to the sepia disaster in the Gulf.
Interview with Bill Morrison.
Music by Michael Gordon.
Original source footage from The Bells, James Young, 1926.

This is great. Thanks for sharing it. You and your family are still in my thoughts and prayers along with everyone in New Orleans.

this is so chilling...I feel this music and images are like post katrina life in the dirty south...we are still living and feeling the utter despair caused by unearthly disaster...we dwell in and wonder at what has totally changed everything as we once were...some feelings blur but reality is stark our hearts flutter somewhere between the two

Hi - long time since I stopped by. But had to say thanks for bringing this film to my attention - intense and wonderful wrapped all around each other.

Best wishes as ever from London
