Carl Brown continues his exploration of chemically treated hand-developed processing in this, the Canadian premiere of Air Cries, ‘Empty Water’. Part I, Misery Loves Company, guided by the vibrant soundtrack of Kaiser Nietzsche’s chaotic meanderings, repeats and moves through several cinematic spaces in which Brown’s ‘alchemy’ blurs the boundary between what is seen and what is imagined. The Red Thread, Part II, pits the tortured voice of Diamanda Galas’ The Plague Mass against a barrage of bodies, stripped lifeless and banal amidst the bubbling celluloid surface of Brown’s ‘liquid fire’.
