This Our Still Life, 2011, 57 min
Comprised of video and 8mm footage dating back to 1989, artist and filmmaker Andrew Kötting has created an exceptionally warm yet unsentimental portrait of his family life in the French Pyrenees where he lives with his wife and his daughter Eden, who has Joubert syndrome.
“The film moves through the four seasons, but mostly it’s a flickering and wilful impression of family life, characterised by found footage edited together with Kötting’s thoughts and a score by Scanner. There’s a sadness running through the film’s reflection on time passing on periods of melancholy, but there’s also joy at familial love and, above all, the bond between a father and daughter.” - Dave Calhoun, Time Out London
