Film Comment Magazine’s Best Undistributed Films of 2017 - Distant Constellation

sight-and-sound-logo.jpg

“Meditative but never morose, Shevaun Mizrahi’s Distant Constellation turns the words and faces of a cast of elderly people into a cinematic repository of memories and historical gravitas... The pairing of industrial upheaval with the burden of socio-historic tribulation can’t help but recall the docufiction experiments of China’s greatest living filmmaker, Jia Zhangke (particularly Still Life and 24 City), while Mizrahi’s formal acumen and rigorous compositional sense nod to the self-professed influence of Portugal’s Pedro Costa, whose Fontainhas trilogy similarly exposed and personified the souls of a neglected community on the brink of extinction... Distant Constellation was presented at True/False as a work in progress... it felt not only seamless, but holistically measured in both form and content, speaks to Mizrahi’s preternatural command and commendably empathetic worldview.”
