Twelve full moons. Twelve women. Twelve landscapes.
SEXTANT will become Wright’s largest body of work to date compiling of twelve instalments. Each film is shot under a different full moon using predominately natural light. Themes relevant to the current cosmic order are explored and expressed through poetry and voiceover.
Filmed as the year unfolds with each instalment released upon completion.
The series will then connect as a multi-screen exhibition, reworked and edited to create one all encompassing experience.
“I was inspired to shoot a film on a full moon—when our sensitivities are heightened. I have always been interested in how an external landscape can become the catalyst for a character’s self discovery.” - Bonnie Wright, August 2016
