THE DAY OF TWO NOONS

Mike Gibisser | US | 2012 | 67m

color/b&w | sound | 16mm on video

 

An experimental essay regarding alterations in the progression of time. Space shrinks by collapsing the duration it takes for a body to traverse it—or a mind. A railroad redesigns the temporal system of a nation. A man photographs a horse. A woman hallucinates the past.

 

Weaving together portraiture, travelogue, and landscape The Day of Two Noons uses shifts in space, subject, and historical circumstance to investigate standardized time as a process of experiential normalization. Exploring the context in which a cultural experience of time is developed, an outline is formed of experiences that do and do not fit within such a standard. The film attempts a diagnostic on the nervous system of a country.

 

With additional shorts TBD.


Mike Gibisser is a filmmaker and artist interested in navigating the indefinite lines between essay, narrative, experimental, and documentary work, often drawing together disparate subjects or time periods. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Cinematic Arts at the University of Iowa.
