Animator Alan Pakarnyk uses radiant colour and simple composition in a seemingly random kaleidoscope of motion to depict nature at work. Sweeping the viewer through a whirlwind cycle of the seasons, the film crashes violently from one image to the next. Terra’s images are matched by a surging score from Winnipeg composer Randolph Peters. Without words.
