SARAH TURNER/MATTHEW

Synopsis

An autobiographical documentary, a fiction that's also an essay and an extended poetic meditation on the ability of the image to represent experience.

Sarah Turner's film is a ghost story that explores what we forget and how we remember. The stunning imagery comes solely from the window of the Trans-Siberian train, shot first in 1988 and then again in 2008, and culminating at the haunting expanse of Lake Baikal, the deepest lake in the world.
