Off  The Trail

By Poets: Gary Snyder, Michael McClure   &  Filmmaker: Nick Jordan, Jacob Cartwright (USA)

Poetry Film International

Winner film International competition Poetry Film Festival ZEBRA 2016

Filmed in former US military barracks, and in the long-abandoned homes and circular library of Gary Snyder and Zen philosopher Alan Watts, Off the Trail follows a central protagonist, a soldier from another era, as he performs a series of actions and rituals. The uniformed figure paints Chinese nature symbols, chants, meditates and wanders dreamlike through a rolling Californian landscape of fog-shrouded hills, coastal defences and dense woodland valleys. Scenes are accompanied by haiku and poetry readings from poets Michael McClure and Gary Snyder, and the disembodied voice of Alan Watts, ruminating upon the passage of time and our perception of the wild. nickjordan.info/offthetrail.html
