The day that left is the first part of a trilogy of films that examine how the digital scrolling of images affects perception and narrative. A static camera frames two distinct windows, in two different countries (Greece and England) in the course of one autumn day. A voice-over of the same female character alternates between the two languages and between different subjective positions. The landscape beyond the window becomes a reference that points to other spaces and experiences. The film explores how the process of observation may produce spaces that might refer to the ‘real’ but are nonetheless ‘constructed’.
