    Dean Quarry / with Eyes That Are Not Seen Are Quickly Forgotten

    Rachael Jones
    6m | UK

      'Dean Quarry / with Eyes That Are Not Seen Are Quickly Forgotten' is a collaborative film experiment that engages with the materiality of filmmaking and glimpses of an abandoned industrial site on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall, UK. The film was shot on Super8 and hand processed, however, an accidental misloading of the film led to much of it becoming stuck together, obscuring the exposed images underneath the film material. The music is written in response to the material quality of the film form, with tones and melody revealing themselves as identifiable images appear and are lost. The key of the piece is drawn from the grid reference of the quarry. The result is a meditation on old industrial and natural objects and a place in transition, on the verge of being transformed into something else but paused in time.

        Jenna is a Truro girl who goes to college during the week and works at her dad’s suit shop on the weekends. Her dad wishes she was more like Jan, who is his full-time shop girl, but she’d rather be making clothes for her cousin, Matthi. Unlike most sixteen-year-old girls, she relishes the banality that comes with Truro life.

         

        But one Saturday, Helen walks into the shop. Jenna has never met anyone like her before, she is the coolest person she has ever met. Helen invites Jenna to her gig in Penzance that night and the venue is filled with people, who all come together to express themselves through Cornish music & dance.  Jenna comes to realise that there is a whole part of Cornwall that she has yet to experience and finds a space within her home where she can be truly herself.
