Rainer Komers // Nome Road System

D, 2006, colour, 35mm,
33 min., without dialog

Take a strange journey along the Nome Road System in Alaska. Powerfully evocative imagery. Stark ambient sounds. A strange, dreamlike world. With assured direction the filmmaker creates a hypnotic rhythm, con-structs a poetic logic to the story and submerses us in an experimental doc that is both accessible and fasci-nating. The camera witnesses normal, prosaic activities: a man has a medical check-up; fish are skinned; a fun bathtub parade moves down main street – and throughout: the recurring, ever-present Nome Road Sys-tem. As an analysis of human activity within a landscape, the film brilliantly achieves a mute intensity. A small masterpiece.
