The Abandoning

“The innocent and the beautiful have no enemy but time.”
W.B.Yeats

Directed by Vanessa Gildea and produced by Sé Merry Doyle this experimental
documentary explores what is left behind in a building or a home when
the people who inhabited the place have long since abandoned it.

This film project is inspired by Paddy Jordan’s pinhole photography and the
ghostly quality that he creates in this work. People appear as silhouettes
or shadows, he creates a dream-like landscape, an alternative reality of our
experience of events. Ultimately, with this pinhole work, he captures an
essence and a feeling – like a whisper from the past.
