Some time ago I showed you an early teaser of A Drinking Bird Mystery, the sixth installment of the Pioneers series. The movie is my attempt at compressing some aspects of Charles H. Bennett’s genius, wit, and charm into sixty minutes long piece of a narrative.
Since I am not allowed to present the whole episode (it’ll premiere in a few months time), I’d be happy to expose you to this trailer (below). I think it’s quite representative of the entire thing.
The movie revolves around the motive of remembering, attempts of saving small past events that went unnoticed, and the process of solidifying them by film and photography.
The polaroids you can see below play a vital role in the movie. All of them were taken by Charles H. Bennett at locations we visited while filming. They might appear grim, but don’t be mistaken – the movie is not.
