Abstract:

A collaboration with the celebrated avant-garde composer Karlheinz Stockhausen, who composed and conducted original music for the film. Shot in black and white and color and projected in CinemaScope, In Absentia combines live action and animation with dazzling use of light to convey the mindscape of a woman alone in a room repeatedly writing a letter with broken off pieces of pencil lead, while outside her window vistas of ever changing light register her every emotion. The film is dedicated to 'E.H. who lived and wrote to her husband from an asylum.' In Absentia was produced by Keith Griffiths at Koninck for the BBC and Pipeline Films' series of short music films 'Sound on Film International.'
