Synopsis

In this film a lone figure wanders through a mysterious wilderness while hounded by spectres and unseen forces. This is a solitary journey, a path of exile and hardship that leads beyond the abyss to where reality loses its mask of concreteness and shows its true fluid face. The Wanderer is assailed by enigmatic figures and creatures that dance across the screen, reality is only momentarily graspable before disintegrating into a sea of colour, texture and abstraction. Each step forwards demands complete submission in order to find harmony in the tension of opposites. Drawing upon their interest in cinema's connections to ritual, alchemy and mythology, Daniel Fawcett and Clara Pais have created a cinematic experience that is akin to a mystical vision. IN SEARCH OF THE EXILE is a ritual of submission and a challenge to the viewer's expectations of cinematic narrative and form.
