Silent Landscape Dancing Grain: Mark Jenkin Film Collection

You can rent all these titles as a bundle for just £2.49 buy clicking on the button above

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.
