Sitting in the Darkness
Out of the darkness a sound emerges. It echoes and drones. Terrified people take to the streets in search of its source. They get their cameras out and document the sky, searching for an author. We watch on, sitting in darkness, our muscles contract and our pupils dilate – “I hope the camera picks this up”. “Sitting in Darkness” is a sensory essay film exploring the circulation, spectatorship and undeclared politics of contemporary networked images.
