Untied Strangers

    • Unrated
    • 18 min

    Co-habitating and conversing in hopes of copulating. Wes is a struggling artist whose artistic process is tied up in processed food, and his roommate Dale has a better handle on his Wii than women. In hopes of a hookup, both meet up with the ever-hopeful Amy and her introverted sister June - also roommates. The online-initiated blind date proves an awkward outing for the four until Dale suggests they each share a story from their lives. The exercise is increasingly sardonic, mocking the lengths to which some strangers will go in hopes of becoming intertwined. Life is funniest when it's happening to someone else.

                Whilst working as an optician during the 1970's George Chance develops an obsession: something that occupies every moment of his spare time for a whole decade. Through skills passed down from his father, George becomes the most accomplished photographer of the New Zealand falcon. He dreams of capturing his beloved falcons as moving images but, restricted by the cost of film equipment, he reluctantly gives up. Now some thirty years later the time has come to reawaken George's dream. At the age of 88 and going blind, George is being called upon one more time. In the winter of 2003 a film-maker from Scotland, looking to make a film on the New Zealand falcon, approaches George looking for advice; they quickly strike a deal. In return for George's help, film-maker Sandy Crichton will attempt to add movement to George's photographs. Set in commercial pine plantations, the film follows a remarkable wild population of falcons that have adapted to take advantage of this man-made habitat. Featuring completely new falcon behavior, and filmed over three breeding seasons, the film-maker gets ever closer to the falcons as he attempts to deliver his side of the bargain.

"English trains don't respect people's time." "When Picasso died, my daughter was born." He observes the drifting clouds, his wife looks at the Houses of Parliament. As he wanders in the Vatican, his wife still praises the English parks. This is the first, and maybe the last time, they leave China. He wants to see the whole world before he dies, but her heart longs for home. As Lao Tzu said : "the further you travel, the less you understand". Written by Anonymous
