Synopsis

The closing titles say “The Two Sights” was “collected” on various islands of the Outer Hebrides from 2017–19, but what does the film gather? There are the images, captured on a 16mm camera, which survey all this ravishing landscape contains, taking in its rocky cliffs, beaches and plains, alighting on its flora and fauna and the houses and ships sprinkled over it, picking out currents, reflections and shifts in light. Then there are the sounds, recorded with the mic visible in the first shots, keening birds, the roaring wind, the crashing, gurgling, trickling of the water. In voiceover, a whole anthology of tales can be heard, narrated in both English and Gaelic, stories of dog skeletons, drowned villages, and family members passing away, although songs, silence and the shipping forecast are just as at home there. But like any great collection, it’s not about the individual elements, but how they overlap, about how the crow hanging on barbed wire conjures up another story never told, about how the ripples seem to reverberate along with the woman’s harmonies, about how each anecdote floats over the rushing air. Sight by eye, sight by ear, two sights that ripple and flow together.

Sinopsis

Završna špica kaže da je materijal filma “Dva pogleda” “prikupljen” na brojnim ostrvima Zapadnog otočja u period 2017-2019, ali šta ustvari film skuplja? Tu su slike na 16 mm kameri, koje sažimaju svu zanosnu ljepotu predjela, njihove kamene litice, plaže i zaravni, probirući struje, refleksije i pomake svjetla. Zatim su tu zvukovi, snimljeni mikrofonom vidljivim u prvim kadrovima, revnosne ptice, urlajući vjetar, lomljava, grgljanje i kapanje vode. U voiceoveru se može čuti cijela antologija pripovijetki, sa naracijom na engleskom i galskom, priče o psećim skeletonima, potopljenim selima, članovima porodice koji umiru, iako pjesme, tišina i prognoze za brodove podjednako bivaju dijelom ambijenta. Ali, kao i u svakoj veličanstvenoj kolekciji, stvar nije u pojedinačnim elementima, već u njihovom preklapanju, o tome kako vrana koja visi na pocinčanoj žici priziva još jednu nikada ispričanu priču, o tome kako mreškanje kao da odjekuje istovremeno sa ženskom pjesmom, o tome kako svaka anegdota pluta iznad užurbanog zraka. Pogled vidom, pogled sluhom, dva pogleda koja žubore i teku zajedno.
