HD with stereo audio
Duration: 09:30 mins 

In It's Just a Shadow Away, two actors work to recreate scenes from Andrei Tarkofsky's 1972 film Solaris in the original Russian - a language of which the have no knowledge - in a work examining mourning, translation, alienation and the pursuit of emotional verisimilitude. The characters they work to bring briefly to life - ghosts that inhabit only the space of the screen - argue over their memories, their clouded past and their lack of sense of Being.
