‘We, all of us creatures, can feel when the new season is coming and it means the same thing in our bones to all of us…’
‘In the dark, dark room’ explores what happens to the psyche when we are isolated in nature – what rituals, fears and desires take over?
The film was shot by Siouxzi Connor and Uferlos Studios in the dark winter of 2016 in the depths of an ancient Finnish forest – the site of a pagan bear cult – during an artist residency with Mustarinda and completed in Uferlos Studios in Berlin.
The film draws on the narrative and thematic elements from the novel Our Little Wooden House In The Forest: exploring ecology, ritual and female sexuality – elements recurring in Siouxzi’s previous work. The soundtrack was created by Klaudia and showcases her ability to create immersive aural worlds using sounds from nature amongst homages to her favourite artists. The work was featured by the BBC World Service: bbc.co.uk/programmes/p04px55v
