What's It Like Out? 2020 HD, Colour Short Film, Experimental 9:05 minutes Writer/Director/Producer: Kathryn Mockler Description What's It Like Out is adapted from a series of one-line works from my forthcoming book When They Said It Was Beautiful, I Should Have Looked which will be published by Book*hug in 2022.
Vivaldi's The Four Seasons: Winter and found footage of sunrises are juxtaposed with these one-liner poems which present as a bleak conversation between two unnamed speakers. The overwrought images and music offer a contrast to the loneliness, existential crisis, despair, and humour of the conversation which reflect our current moment of uncertainty and environmental chaos.
