REMNANTS explores the rise and fall of the Neolithic civilisation of Britain via motion controlled, digital timelapse cinematography.
This sounds right up my street, am a total sucker for all things Neolithic and onwards.
Here's a couple of Trailers for the movie.
I've hoofed it to, huddled under, touched and marveled at may of the sites included in the trailers.
Can't wait to see the full thing looks wonderful.
"In one of the longest continuous cultural developments ever known, for nearly 3000 years construction was undertaken of some of the most enduring monuments in the world – standing stones and stone circles. Having been dismissed for centuries by much of academia as the work of little more than illiterate barbarians, research in the 20th and 21st centuries by a handful of persistent investigators has revealed these Megalithic sites to be not only amongst the oldest and most mysterious, but perhaps the most profound.
Little is known of this civilisation, and its people have all but vanished without trace. All that is left are their remnants, and they too, in the crush of ‘progress’ are disappearing.
Photographed throughout the UK and Ireland, and set to an original music score by TANGERINE DREAM member Thorsten Quaeschning, REMNANTS captures the essence and austere beauty of these amazing constructions, suggests and reveals their purposes, and poses an important question to our own contemporary position.
History has proven repeatedly that no civilisation can last indefinitely. Humankind’s attempts to immortalise itself have been futile undertakings. Our current technologically based civilisation may shortly find itself at this same juncture.
Is it not unlikely that we shall share the same fate?
