Hunter From Elsewhere .\ Berkshire International Film Festival
June 2, 2023 10am
Director Elena Alvarez Lutz's film Hunter from Elsewhere will make its US festival premiere on Friday, June 2nd at the Berkshire International Film Festival.
In Hunter From Elsewhere: A Journey with Helen Britton we accompany Australian artist Helen Britton on her hunt for neglected materials, abandoned techniques, and the last witnesses of a vanishing era. A poetic exploration and love letter to curiosity, this documentary film gives us a rare glimpse into the mind of a fascinating and brilliant artist. Much of the film focuses on Helen's body of work Wildstone, made for a 2016 exhibition at the gallery.

"Never intrusive, but finely observed – an almost tactile approach to a fascinating woman and her practice. You follow Britton as she explores materials – which at times feels like archaeology, delving into industrial relics as much as her own life. From what jewelry works become a form of condensed, transformed memory.” Thomas Willmann, Münchner Merkur
