The Room Called Heaven
Laida Lertxundi, 2012, 11 min, 16mm

Lovely West Coast melancholia in this loosely composed 16mm film that reveals a precise eye. The music works like a time machine.

Laida Lertxundi's intimate composition of intrinsically cinematic human actions. The locations, sunlight and snippets of music evoke a mysterious emotion that resounds in every image during the exact length of a 16mm roll of film.
