For Cornish filmmaker Mark Jenkin, the camera is truly an extension of the eye. He frames the world around him, typically that of the dramatic coastline of West Penwith, in a 4:3 ratio, capturing the environment on a 1976 16mm clockwork Bolex camera, forever committing it to 100ft rolls of Kodak film, the very material of collective memories.
Lives are captured in landscapes, interwoven with stories of a disappearing Cornwall, where times are hard, but time itself is not a linear reality in Mark Jenkin’s world. Even his clockwork Bolex camera can only tell it 27 windup seconds at a time.
Many of these films have been made in accordance with the rules of the SLDG 13 Film Manifesto.
