The Two Unseens

The Two Unseens is a short experimental archival poetry film utilising footage of the first ever film recording of an astronomical event, a solar eclipse captured by magician Nevil Maskelyne in 1900. The original poem itself is an existential reflection on our metaphysical connection to the cosmos and forces of nature.
