An absolutely mesmerising journey into psycho-geography, this unique and highly lauded film examines landscape and ghosts, amnesia and representation, innovatively linking global warming to both an artistic and a personal crisis. On Turner’s initial trip to Siberia in 1987-8, she continuously filmed the passing landscape. After 20 years (during which time her two closest friends died), she ‘repeated both a train journey to Siberia and a process… And in this way I realised that photography as an act actually creates rather than records experiences…for me the film very explicitly functions as an environmental allegory. Are we all ghosts passing through as the world moves outside the frame of our (overheated) windows?’ – S. Turner
