In a present distance - Film Retrospective

Over the past twenty years Tracy has created a variety of film, video and mixed media works. In 2006, Tracy German completed the acclaimed “In A Present Distance…” a 27min. experimental video, made over eight years from 16mm and super 8mm collected images. It is a mesmerizing portrait of motherhood framed around a train trip to Quebec City, in which fragments of a woman’s life emerge and speak subtly and sublimely to the journey of life: of grieving and loss, of happiness and sadness as well as the joyful and reverent gestures of living. As well Tracy German has completed eight short 16mm experimental films and videos the most notable of these - “A Private Patch Of Blue”, exhibited at over 40 film festivals, winning the Dunn Hayes Memorial award at the Onion City film festival in Chicago.
