Cast/Crew Info
Director:Barbara Meter


Meter treats her footage as if it were found, creating her own personal archive, re-shooting and manipulating it as if it had been given to her, trying to figure out what it is and what lies behind it. Convalescing breaks away from explanations to take solace in the mood created by the natural and the electric light coming through the windows and the television set. Meter reflects on those moments of distancing oneself from the world, and writes: “…the blue, the light of the television, the blue, the book, the patterns, the light, the blue. Time to appreciate how much that really is.”
