Synopsis

Closer  is a film about an old man's fascination with a wilderness landscape painting at the Horniman's Museum. Shot entirely without dialogue, the story evokes a sense of spiritual longing to be somewhere else; somewhere far away from it all. The clever framing, lighting and an atmospheric sound design adds to the supernatural conclusion the film takes us to.
