Camera Obscura

Synopsis

Camera Obscura is an experimental documentary which draws sounds and images from the Dartington Hall Estate in Devon and constructs an idiosyncratic portrait. Verbal and textual definitions attempt to pin down what it is and play against elusive images. Archive material and re-invented historical events evoke the ethos of the past and combine with stories and contemporary details to illuminate the spirit of the place.
