In this week’s lecture, scenes from Scott Ruo’s ‘Four Images’, Brian Hill’s ‘Drinking for England’ and Chantal Akerman’s ‘D’Est’ were screened. Choose one of these, and consider, in a single paragraph, what might have intrigued, interested, displeased or repelled you.
Out of the three films screened in the lecture, Scott Rou’s Four Images impressed me the most. When it starts I didn’t even realise that it’s a documentary. I thought it was an art film or some kind of short video clip that focuses on cinematography. It’s really different from most of the documentaries I’ve watched, the images were so vivid and metaphorical to imply and portray the life of the main character. Only when the voice in the background started speaking, I realised that it really is a documentary. This new artistic way of documentary making brings me a lot more feelings. I really enjoyed watching it.
