Paul Turano
Des Pas sur la Neige (Footprints in the Snow)
2011
16mm B+W
4:30
With a day off during a heavy winter storm, I defrosted my last few rolls of Plus-x B+W reversal film that were stowed away in my freezer and set out to a nearby park seeking reverie with nature. Part of a series of films inspired by late 19th and early 20th century short musical forms, typically featuring solo instruments, this work was prompted by Debussy’s “Des pas sur la Neige” (Footprints in the Snow).
