The Day of Two Noons

The Sight
Jeremy Moss
16mm on Video, 4 min., 2012, USA

The Creation As We Saw It
Ben Rivers
16mm, 14 min., 2012, UK

"Three mythical stories from the island nation of Vanuatu, in the South Pacific, concerning the origin of humans, why pigs walk on all fours, and why a volcano sits where it does." (BR)

Corn Mother
Taylor Dunne
16mm, 6 min., 2012, USA

“My mother’s last visit to her garden captured on a single cartridge of Super 8 and blown up to 16mm. Hand-scratched text borrowed from the Wabanaki legend 'The Corn and Tobacco Mother'.” (TD)

The Day of Two Noons
Mike Gibisser
16mm on Video, 68 min., 2012, USA

"An experimental essay regarding alterations in the progression of time. Space shrinks by collapsing the duration it takes for a body to traverse it—or a mind. A railroad redesigns the temporal system of a nation. A man photographs a horse. A woman hallucinates the past. Weaving together portraiture, travelogue, and landscape, The Day of Two Noons uses shifts in space, subject, and historical circumstance to investigate standardized time as a process of experiential normalization. Exploring the context in which a cultural experience of time is developed, an outline is formed of experiences that do and do not fit within such a standard. The film attempts a diagnostic on the nervous system of a country." (MG)
