Year2017 Duration19 min. DirectorRobert Todd

Shot in 16mm on Rob's Bolex, this is a very private film, one that I decided in 2017 wasn't to be seen by anyone who didn't know my son Lucas Todd Wheeler. Rob honoured my wish, and did not make a work print, leaving it to be shared only via video link amongst friends and family. After Rob's suicide I decided the film was a stunning representation of the grief we feel not only for Lucas, but for the whole world, at the loss of so much light, and so I sent the link out far and wide.

Robert Todd (1963-2018) was a profoundly creative and compassionate person who expressed raw emotion through the medium of film. He was a prolific filmmaker, a dedicated mentor and educator, a painter of dark wonders, and a musical prodigy. His cinema had a profound influence on the international experimental film community, embracing the deep complexity of the natural world and reflecting his internal self, sometimes through multiple mirrors.
