The Barren Land
Bea De Visser
excerpt: 2"53 min
original duration: 8 minutes, 35mm
A man (Richard Strange), lost in desolation, shows up on a wasteland, a barren plane and a narrow alley. A torn up monologue by a man who has temporary lost his tracks. The Barren Land is loosely based on monologues from the great Tragedies and other words of rumour, humour and horror.
All words are found footage i.e. Oedipus, Hamlet, Hank Williams, Mae West, Hugo Claus, Bert Schierbeek, Mick Jagger and the Guinness Book of Records
