DROVE (OR THE DEVIL IS IN THE DANCE) [2012]

Drove (or The Devil is in the Dance) from Nic Carter on Vimeo.

My short film entitled Drove (or the Devil is in the Dance) [2012] was selected from over 350 international submissions for the “now what” event. This event was curated by Microscope Gallery and took place on January 7th 2013 at Running Rebel Studios, Brooklyn NY, US.

SPECS / DESCRIPTION:

Nicola Joanne Carter, digital video, colour, silent, 2:42 min, 2012

On a midwinters night a solitary hare runs along a remote country road, we (the viewer) apparently driving the animal, chasing closely in some unknown vehicle. We watch her movements, the wild mesmerizing dance, in and out of frame, illuminated only by our headlights and the full moon…

Shortly, we pause, kill our engine, allow the beast some respite, to trvail some distance ahead, escape out pursuit…but here now a shift, an eerie exchange, the hare has not made its escape, instead she too has paused, she seems to wait for us, crouching in the shadows…Is it now we who follow? We who are led onwards into darkness by this mysterious nighttime traveller? Who is driving who? What are we witness to in this encounter?
