Still at Large

Overview

‘Still at Large’ is a festival commission by Paul Rooney created during his residency with Berwick Visual Arts and Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival during 2015.

The film is an encounter with Holy Island's real and fictional past, including a dreamlike encounter with the shooting of Roman Polanski’s Lindisfarne-set Cul-de-Sac. Nicholas Still presents an essay film about the island, but this is disrupted by a voice which describes a sinister fugitive immersed in the sea who seems to want to recreate the violent climactic scenes of Cul-de-Sac. Is the voice in Still's subconscious, or is it emanating from the landscape, or the sea? Or is it the voice of 'narrative' itself, submerging everything in its sadistic tide?

Guidance 12+ years - contains adult language unsuitable for children.

Berwick Visual Arts and Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival’s joint 2015 residency provides the opportunity for an artist working with moving image to focus intensively on a project for six months while responding to the 2015 festival theme of ‘Fact or Fiction’.
