Event description

all circles the moon and dirt shines in the sun is an expanded film work produced by Dogmilk’s new cross-cultural exchange project, Sipakatuo (Glorify One Another). 

4 video channels on 4 screens, each a different perspective and temporality of the same event, of adjacent action, each contributing to the construction of a shared collective memory, and each produced by a cameraperson in the DSTV crew. In a collision of form and substance, all circles the moon and dirt shines in the sun proposes an emotional topography of DSTV’s work over the last 15 years, a living and growing archive of Torajan life, individual and communal.

all circles the moon and dirt shines in the sun is made up of over 4000 separate clips from the DSTV video archive. Re-arranged and constructed by Wahyu Al Mardhani and Chris Cochrane-Friedrich, the archival video material is accompanied by text from interviews conducted with the founder of DSTV, Victor Konda, over the last four years and sound recordings collected by sound artist Josh Peters in Toraja.

This work includes images of a person who has passed away and their body’s preparation for a funeral ceremony. Some viewers may find this footage distressing.
