End of Summer

2015

Plot

Jóhann Jóhannsson’s ‘End of Summer’ is a hypnotic and slow­burning dérive through the austere landscapes of the island of South Georgia and the Antarctic Peninsula. Filmed as a series of mostly static tableaux over a period of 20 days during the waning days of the Antarctic Summer, the film is a startling look at life at the edge of the world. The film is informed by American theorist Timothy Morton's idea of "dark ecology" ­ in which the old ideas of nature as an object of beauty and the privileging of the human is disputed.
Without narration and with a soundtrack that blends cello and voices with Jóhann's field recordings from the voyage, the film maps and explores the terrain of an increasingly fragile region.
