Heavy Water is still in production but its trailer hints at a difficulty it explores being the connection of its two main themes represented by adjacent places on the Suffolk coast; the strange, liminal landscape surrounding Sizewell nuclear power station and the crumbling coastline of Dunwich up the coast. The difficulty has come in channelling the theme of Hauntology through such a geography, connecting some unforeseen nuclear calamity surrounding the plant with the past calamity of Dunwich itself falling into the sea.
A film adaptation of the Holloway book by Robert Macfarlane, Stanley Donwood and Dan Richards. The film was made alongside Macfarlane who has written and recorded its voice-over, Donwood who allowed the use of many of his Holloway inspired prints, composer Richard Skelton who has recorded an entirely new piece of musical score for it, and sound artist, James Bulley who let us use his Holloway recording project.
