My Room at the Centre of the Universe – Preview

sutherland shoot

My Room at the Centre of the Universe is a 12 minute preview of a 60 minute film which, together with an illustrated resource book, departs from the act of sensitive and intensive observation common to the fields of astronomy, archaeology and the visual arts. A small Karoo farm outhouse becomes a space of contemplation and creativity for the main character, a 16 year old teenager from Sutherland. One small window in his room acts as a framing device through which he observes and contemplates the landscape, the skies and ultimately the universe: much like a telescopes for a physicist and indeed the view Hubble offers humankind. in collaboration with
