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

American plains and high altitudes assembled in a B-roll structure take us to a place of sounds*. Plans américains show color and temperature shifts while an emotional room tone is sustained for the length of a 400ft camera roll.

*Vision: Sound on Screen, Michel Chion.
