Programmer's Note

From the Japanese countryside, we travel to rural Australia along Coorow-Latham Road. In a radical recasting of the long take, Blake Williams reconstructs the eponymous route using Google Street View, producing a vaporous road movie in which our perspective gradually shifts, and the succeeding ghost trails appear like spectral bookbinding. Both elegant and visceral, it is an internet-sourced work of structuralist cinema that must be viewed in its entirety for full, vertiginous effect.
