Iona Pelovska ‘The Eyes that Stop the Train’

Synopsis:

 

Moments of life lived, missed, remembered and forgotten, as glimpsed through the window of a moving train.

 

A view on thought and vision playing out the film of life - eyes looking through the window of a moving train. This film invokes the process of memory, the way thought snippets interject perception. The moving train => time => the moving image. The beginning of cinema: 'Arrival of a Train at La Ciotat' seen from the POV of the passenger. The passage of time seen through the ears of John Cage: 'Bacchanale' - the sound of life dynamic and chaotic, a thrust forth in time reversible/re-playable unto death.
