distance between here and there, the
Canada/U.S.A. / 8:00 / 2005 / sound / colour
Traveling through an invented landscape... the space between here and there.

"Battle grounds her travel films not so much in place as in time. 'the distance between here and there' is one of her most abstract, rigorous and beautiful engagements with duration... In Battle's film, it is between here and there, the interval between two points, that marks the experience of travel. The film is able to powerfully evoke that indefinite liminal nowhere, the feeling of being dislocated and in movement." - Janine Marchessault

"An abstract film made by applying colour tape directly onto emulsion and exposing it to light. The film presents colour fields in motion, though for the most part the ground is white like a gessoed canvas, and filled with a moving curtain of dust and hair and spots. In order to relieve the regularity (the tyranny?) of the projector's 24 frame per second pulse, freeze frames are introduced, showing up and isolating a jagged crimson edge, an orange wall with its soft cracks, a yellow corner. After isolating, and setting apart colours in the film's opening movement, they are brought together in a careening, flickering collage in the film's second minute. Anticipating and then re-blending the afterimages of these ragged colour fields, the palette slowly darkens as the layers accumulate, canceling out the brilliance of 'pure' colours. A visceral, physical cinema making the eyeballs sweat. Hidden colour codes of the synapses firing: a new thought is being born, and a new movie to accompany it." - Mike Hoolboom, 2007
