Experimental film structured by a camera track around a figure in the middle of a field. "This film contrasts the movement of the camera with the stillness of the figure standing motionless in a landscape. The cameraman, recording his journey in timelapse, moves in large arcs and circles about a central axis occupied by the figure. The film inspires a completely novel spatial awareness of the surrounding countryside which swirls dramatically around the stationary figure." Chris Welsby 1977
