One of the most talked about films in the history of experimental cinema, Michael Snow’s three-hour La Région Centrale is an epic homage to the landscape tradition. Shot in remote Quebec with a specially designed machine capable of rotating the camera in all directions, the film traces spirals, twirls, and figure-eights as it probes the surrounding wilderness-fragmenting time, space, and vision. 1971, Michael Snow, Canada, 190 min, 16mm.
