The Sensation of Sight

starring David Strathairn, Ian Somerhalder, and Daniel Gillies written & directed by Aaron J. Wiederspahn Rated R for some language. 95%

Following the devastation of a personal tragedy, Finn (Strathairn), a mild English teacher, leaves his job and his family and begins peddling a set of encyclopedias door-to-door around town as he struggles to sort things out. “Life has become my second language,” he tells a friend sadly. Along the way he encounters several other broken people, including a single mother and a brooding young man. As the audience slowly learns about the event that led Finn and his various acquaintances to their present condition, he draws closer to the possibility of healing, both for himself and for his fellow sufferers.

The Sensation of Sight is an intense production that quietly commands undivided attention from its opening moments. It begins precisely as the title might lead one to expect, with a beautifully-framed, static shot that is held for about five minutes of near-silence while we take in every single detail of the scene. It is an invitation to the audience to exercise its own sensation of sight, in preparation for what is to follow. What is going on here? What are we meant to see? These questions are eventually answered, but as the characters reveal themselves these simple queries are replaced by much bigger questions about suffering and loss. These are difficult questions, and it is to this movie’s credit that it explores them without trying to supply them with easy answers.

Although the main story ostensibly revolve around Finn’s quest for meaning, the filmmakers clearly understand that in real life, every minor character in one story has a central role in another. In this case, that translates into several subplots populated by a wide variety of characters whose importance to Finn’s journey at any given moment is incidental to our interest in their personal stories. Certainly, everything comes together in the end, but organically and naturally, rather than in a neat or contrived way.

All of these “secondary” characters are hurting and isolated within their small pockets of grief, unable to really connect with the larger world and even seemingly unaware of each other. The performers who bring all of these characters to life are amazing here. Strathairn in particular has created (or perhaps I should say “inhabited”) an iconic character (with his eccentric outfit and mannerisms, and his little red wagon loaded with encyclopedias) who is somehow still a bit of an Everyman; a person who is flawed and broken but still searching for answers. Really, though, it is only his prominent role that leads me to single his work out from that of, for instance, Jane Adams or Scott Wilson: low-profile actors who do excellent work and are always a pleasure to watch.

There is a very strong unity of purpose powering this story. That sounds like an obvious sort of thing to say about a film, but in actual practice it is rare enough to be worthy of comment. The writing is firm and focused. The performances are nuanced and spot-on. The camera-work is simultaneously full of ethereal beauty and a concrete connection to place that is completely immersive. This internal harmony is key to the movie’s spiritual dimension, which is pervasive but not overt. I am hesitant to delve too deeply into this aspect of the film, despite my great appreciation of it, because it is so intimately connected with important second- and third-act plot revelations. Suffice to say that the film’s examination of sorrow, loss, and the search for answers should prove rewarding for any discerning viewer, whether or not they have ever experienced such pain themselves.

The Sensation of Sight is the sort of film that demands to be seen more than once; not because it didn’t make sense the first time, but because the experience becomes even richer and more meaningful with each successive viewing. Most movies diminish considerably with repeated viewings, and it is always a great pleasure to discover a film with the opposite quality.

SOMEPLACE LIKE AMERICA

The New Hampshire Film and Television Office, in partnership with Red River Theatres, will present a reading of the original screenplay SOMEPLACE LIKE AMERICA written by Aaron J. Wiederspahn, on Thursday, February 5 at 7 p.m. at Red River Theatres in Concord, as part of the ongoing Screenplay Reading Series.

SOMEPLACE LIKE AMERICA, which is scheduled to be filmed in New Hampshire later this year, is a contemporary tale set in New Hampshire's North Country after the closing of its paper mills. It follows Dutch, a long-unemployed steel worker and transient poet, as he returns to his family after a prolonged absence and attempts to reestablish contact with his grandson. Focusing on the struggles of the unemployed and disenfranchised, this narrative feature reflects on the possibility of personal and communal rebirth in the aftermath of economic collapse, illuminating in human terms a growing national issue in this post-industrial age.

The reading of SOMEPLACE LIKE AMERICA will be followed by a discussion with members of the New Hampshire-based production company, Either/Or Films, which produced The Sensation of Sight, starring David Strathairn. Either/Or Films Executive Producer Buzz McLaughlin and Writer/Director Aaron Wiederspahn will lead the discussion. The screenplay is inspired by the nonfiction book Journey to Nowhere: The Saga of the New Underclass, by Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists Dale Maharidge and Michael Williamson, both of whom will be on hand for the discussion along with documentary filmmaker Ron Wyman, who will be working with the project.

Tickets are $8 ($6 members) and are available at the Red River Theatres box office or online. Seating is limited and reservations are strongly suggested.

From the Boston Globe "Names" column:

'Dinner' on the beach
Hampton Beach deserves a love letter, does it not? But producer Mark Constance says locals might not recognize the spot chosen for the backdrop of "Killing Dinner," a short he just finished shooting with co-producer Tracey Becker and writer/director Mitch Ganem. "I like to make films that look like postcards," said Constance, a Granite State native and assistant director for "Charlie's Angels" and "Fever Pitch." "At the Hampton Beach State Park . . . there's sea grass, dunes, and hills. It's beautiful." The plot, however, is more gritty. Constance describes it as a black comedy about a trio of ex-assassins involved in a love triangle, in the spirit of Quentin Tarantino and David Mamet. Stars include Brett Cullen, of "Lost," and local actors Neil McGarry of "Brotherhood" and Molly Schreiber, who worked on "Edge of Darkness." He hopes to have it finished by December, and ready to send to film festivals. Next up: fellow New Hampshirite Ganem, Becker, and Constance hope to collaborate on the long-planned "Losing Jerry," a buddy film about three Grateful Dead fans.

::: November 7, 2008 :::
a713production of Stratham, NH and Beachfront Films of Venice, CA would like to announce that completion of principal photography on the film "Killing Dinner".

"Killing Dinner" was written and directed by Mitch Ganem("Elvis Has Left the Building”) a Wolfeboro, NH native now living in New York City.

The film was produced by Tracey Becker("Finding Neverland") and Mark Constance( "The Sensation of Sight") who will partner once again to produce the upcoming "Losing Jerry", also to be directed by Ganem.

"Killing Dinner" is a black comedy in the tradition of Quentin Tarantino and David Mamet about a trio of ex-assasins involved in a love triangle. The cast includes Brett Cullen("Lost", "The West Wing", "Friday Night Lights"), Molly Schreiber("Edge of Darkness"), Neil McGarry("Brotherhood"), Chase Bailey and Younger Robbins.

The film now in post production will be submitted to various film festivals around the world upon completion.

The film was shot entirely on location in Portsmouth and Hampton Beach, NH.

"THE SENSATION OF SIGHT" is released on DVD
Either/Or Films is pleased to announce that THE SENSATION OF SIGHT, starring Academy Award Best Actor nominee David Strathairn, is now available throughout the U.S. for purchase or rental at Amazon, Netflix, Blockbuster, Barnes & Noble, etc.--everywhere DVDs are sold or rented.

Recent reviews after its New York theatrical run come from The New York Post, which praises David's "splendid performance," and the Village Voice, which dubs THE SENSATION OF SIGHT "Moving, charming, and universally well acted." The New York Times cites its cinematography, saying it "has visual pizazz to spare."

Box Office Magazine calls THE SENSATION OF SIGHT "Exemplary American filmmaking," giving kudos to its "superb performances. Strathairn is both charming and empathetic; he is as much a delight to watch as Bill Murray in Lost in Translation or Broken Flowers." 

And Prairie Miller of NewsBlaze.com writes: "Like a delicately designed patchwork quilt, The Sensation of Sight is crafted from the odds and ends of its characters, then ultimately surprises with its fusion of introspection and emotion...David Strathairn's Finn imparts a metaphorical healing vision of a restored life."

Meanwhile, THE SENSATION OF SIGHT's theatrical run continues, with an upcoming opening in Seattle September 10.

a713production has completed principal photography on 3 videos for "Leaving Eden". Shooting took place during a 15 hour shooting day on Sunday June 26. The pieces included "The Beast" of which we hope will capture the fury and look of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit" and Velvet Revolver's "Slither"..."Somewhere Behind" with it's dark, somber strength featuring the intensity of "Leaving Eden" guitarist and singer, Eric Gynan. And the final video of "Deep", "LE's" powerful ballad showing off the incredible vocals of Gynan and Carole Tardif. With 3 different songs, with 3 different sounds and 3 different looks, director Mark Constance feels he has captured stunning visuals that will make the music business stand up and look (and listen)!!!...The editing process has begun and Constance and the band plan to unveil the videos at a Video Release Party sometime in August. Stay tuned to this website for further details.
