The 2011 Place and Placelessness Virtual Graduate Conference featured a short film competition. Â EHTV is proud to present the three films submitted to the contest as a special series. Â The first film comes from Amanda Hooykaas, PhD Candidate in the Department of Geography and Environmental Management at the University of Waterloo.
“This short film explores the relationships between place and self and history and future. Through an examination of creating a dwelling out of a space, this film attempts to capture the essence of Thoreau’s Walden Pond in today’s society. Compelling, thought-provoking, and aesthetic, this film challenges audiences to consider their own places in space, whether physically, spiritually, or otherwise.” – Amanda Hooykaas
