Synopsis

Directors: Brian McClave, Tom Wichelow. UK 2016. 50 mins. Flicker + Pulse is a striking and poignant portrayal of time passing in a beautiful Sussex walled garden. Using real-time and time-lapse footage, the film explores the relationship between the seasons and the plants and people who work within the walls of the garden. Locked into the clock of the solar system, the garden performs its annual display, guided by the ritualistic human intervention of those passionately engaged with its soil. The film takes the form of a contemplative visual poem, with a stunning soundtrack by Wendy Rae Fowler, and could be described as the meeting point between Gardeners’ World and Koyaanisqatsi. Flicker + Pulse is a celebration of flickering (in terms of time-lapse photography) and pulsing (in terms of the mechanics of time passing) and therefore may not be suitable for those affected by flashing lights. Followed by a Q&A with directors Brian McClave and Tom Wichelow.
