The End of the World
(1987, 10 mins)

Various shots of various things.

The world of things and movements traces itself backwards and forwards in an
ecstatic vertigo of metaphysical allusion, whilst we sublimely subordinate the will to desire.
"Look out", Marguerite Duras says, "you see the end of the world".

SD, from Super 8 original

Reviews:  "A marriage of naturalistic detail, fleeting abstract emotion, and a private, secret will-to-autobiography."
                           - Adrian Martin, The Australian Screen, 1989.

Screenings: 10, including: Melbourne International Film Festival, June 1987; "The Films of Bill Mousoulis", Nov 1992.
