Elegy is a short film in memory of a cat. It depicts her nocturnal space as imagined by us. This space is our “garden,” a dank and decaying backyard full of weeds and wildlife, a place that belonged more to her than to us. Various creatures join in the process of mourning, on and off screen.
Elegy, Ian Wiblin and Anthea Kennedy, 3’25” b/w, 2001.
Elegy will be shown on Day 2 of Screening Nature at the Whitechapel Gallery, 19th of May. The filmmakers will be present for a Q & A.
