Shadow of a Journey

Shadow of a Journey begins, visually, with a movement of watery images flickering across the screen; and meanwhile, on the sound track, a woman sings a Gaelic song.

Shadows on the sunlit water are identifiable as those of a ship''s from the ferry whose passage is causing the water to churn across the picture. The film locks into into the viewer''s continuum and the lilting song is complementary. The apparent situation is the familiar one of a journey during which the passing scene is registered but only partially engages the thoughts.
