Aberhart's House


“In Aberharts House (1976), there’s a smart cut (all of Paul’s films were edited in-camera) between a female figure in the kitchen cutting a sandwich and a male figure in the garden applying a chainsaw to a log. The activities are presented as equal value, and her focus is firmly on the former.” - Sophie Meyer, 'Bodies and film: 2015 Experimenta at the London Film Festival', Sight and Sound magazine, 2015

"One nets a landscape in a grid of formal rhythms. In a landscape or garden one discerns messages from within." - J.M.P., Cantrills Film Notes nos. 47,48. August 1985.
