All Trace Is Gone, No Clamour for a Kiss Video
In a nondescript forest, two exiled individuals are about to reincarnate into the next life while striking up an intimate conversation on family legends, collective histories, love tales and folklore.
The film, shot on 16mm film, animation and archival materials, is divided into five chapters: Mother; A Love Story; The Tower; Unknown Land; Haunted Island. The dialogue between the two characters appears only on screen, as the film is led by a sonic narrative – a score composed for the work by British trumpeter Kevin G. Davy.
