  • Looking at the Sea

    2000–01. USA. Directed by Peter Hutton. A sketchbook of impossibly beautiful images drawn from the landscape and sea of Ireland's wildly desolate west coast. Flat-edged trees are rendered with the classical serenity of a Claude Lorraine drawing, while the sun becomes a baroque medley of oranges, reds, and midnight blues on the water's glittering surface. Churning waves crash against massive rock outcroppings, and the silvery nighttime sky is abstracted in tidal pools. 35 min.

  • Skagafjördur

    2002–04. USA. Directed by Peter Hutton. With a quiet sense of drama, Hutton's magnificently photographed portrait of Skagafjördur, the fjord valley and coastline of northwest Iceland, renders it a land that time forgot, with only the barest traces of human activity and with closely observed atmospheric effects that blur distinctions between sea, earth, and sky. 35 min.
