As Far As Our Eyes Can See

As Far As Our Eyes Can See Within the Restrictions of Temporality and the Limits of a Hundred and Sixty-Eight Hours: A Visual Diary written by five hands instead of one.

This film is a group of friends' attempt to snatch the eternal out of the ever-fleeting, a way of stopping something that overpowers all of us: the flow of time.

"As Far As Our Eyes Can See" is a play on Jonas Mekas’ idea of diary filmmaking through deeply personal expression made plural. Five people record whatever their attention was drawn to without any further instructions, expectations, or limitations, for 24 hours across the span of a week.

Director Statement

Who we are depends on the people we surround ourselves with. The camera becomes an extension of five sets of eyes recording the personal shared act of perception in the process of roaming the spaces dwelled. In a way, memories achieve plastic immortality through a documentation that visualises (psychological) experience in the form of twenty-four frames per second.
