This was a kind of experimental film where I combined an old audio track (narrator and choir) with some of John Berger’s words from “Here is where we meet”. I was perhaps trying to follow John Berger’s statement that he “risks to write nonsense these days”
The audio track is from this film by me: Oor auldest relative (made 2 years ago)
The words are by John Berger from “Here is where we meet” (just recently read by Peter)
This was filmed at Stirling castle in the old cemetery and features the Martyrs monuments.
So what might this film be about? Well I have no religious faith so it is not about that. Perhaps it is about learning over time? Perhaps it is about the meeting of Philosophy with Science? Perhaps it is about wounds and how we react to them? Perhaps it is about how poetry can convey briefly what other disciplines of thought may struggle with? Or perhaps it is about all of these and more? Though, rest assured this film does not offer an overall Philosophy!
