  • Description (english) Fascinated by the wonderful canadian autumn light the filmmaker was inspired to create this visual exploration of the two fundamental elements of film: light and movement. Look how beautiful the light moves is an attempt to remain in time rather than space. Shot in a house in Montreal, the images capture different light situations in real time and time lapse using in-camera editing. The filmstrip of the Super8 cassette was handprocessed and remains unedited. The title referes not just to the captured light movements, but to the moving light on the screen through the projector’s bulb and to the journey the original, unprinted light media made ‚ from the house in Montreal into the projection booth of this screening room.
