The 401st Blow :: Thoughts On Media

Time Immemorial: Pine Point

Posted in Content by Noah Harlan on March 7, 2011

The National Film Board of Canada has produced an amazing documentary project called Pine Point. It was created by The Goggles, from AdBusters magazine and is a hypnotic, entrancing portrait of a vanished town in Canada called Pine Point. It was a town created out of thin air, occupied for a generation, and now exists ensconced in the memories of its one-time residents. Haunting, beautiful, sad, and tender I cannot recommend taking 20 minutes and exploring this work. While it retains a linear quality to its structure, the piece blends media formats and techniques and allows you to navigate at your own pace without ever feeling gimmicky.

The project is available here.
