Robert Kramer

In The Country (1966) 16mm, black and white, 65 min

Genre: Narrative

The film deals with some of the contemporary forms of isolation and self-obsession. The story of this couple set apart in the country, turning increasingly upon themselves, derives its meaning from the former political engagement of the man. Both the former political attachments, and the city that they chose not to visit anymore, encroach upon them increasingly; they are caught precisely in the lapse between all their former associations, beliefs, attempts, and a new ground that they haven't been able to define. The film becomes almost a close case history of this trapping, repetitive state pain. --R. K.
