There Is a Happy Land Further Away Trailer (2015)
24 November 2015 20 mins
This new work is developed from footage collected during a trip to the remote and beautiful sub-tropical island of Vanuatu in the South Pacific. In March 2015, after Riversâ€™ visit, Vanuatu was devastated by Cyclone Pam, laying waste large parts of the islands. Riverâ€™s 16mm lm material has become a record of a place that has irrevocably changed. Filmed on 16mm and then digitised, island imagery of active volcanoes, underwater WW2 debris, children playing, and wrecked boats transform into intangible digital recollections of the island. Images of the eroded land merge with eroding lm and deteriorate until they are no longer recognisable.
