Filmed along the banks of New York's Hudson and London's Thames rivers, Burki's project investigates the river as a place of passage, creating film sequences that lie somewhere between documentary and fiction. The film's subjects are the people who live and work along the banks and the places where people pass by the water's edge and wait. Over 80 people were filmed along the two waterfronts; in New York at the Staten Island Ferry, Battery Park, Pier 26 in Tribeca and Pier 84 in Clinton; in London at the Tate Gallery, Tilbury Docks and National Theatre. In London the work is shown on the National Theatre Lyttleton flytower rising 200 feet above the Thames. In New York City the film is shown along the Holland Tunnel New York River Ventilation Building, reaching 930 feet out into the Hudson. Flirting with documentary while questioning it, Time After, Time Along, The River presents an intensely intimate portrait of its subjects. By slowing down the images and projecting them on a vast scale, every detail of every face and place is revealed.
The publication's text contains excerpts of Burki's interviews with her subjects. Responses to her questions about the river and how it effects their lives reveal wonderful variations in knowledge and experience. Dozens of full-page color stills, close-ups and portraits, give a sense of the sheer size of the projections. The accompanying CDs contain the entire "soundtrack" to the monumental oeuvre: the recorded conversations, memories and thoughts of the participants. Includes 2 audio CDs.
