(The Figure Was) An Enchantress, A Wanderer, Wild Man, Green And Grinning, Body Of Water, Boggy Earth is a film made in collaboration with Hollie Miller.
Drawing parallels between the symbolic Green Man and the multiple figures of the Lady of the Lake from Arthurian legend, tracing back to their Celtic origins, through their transformations of plurality, gender, body and meaning; back through deviations, derivations and misinterpretations of languages and translation. The Lady of the Lake was Viviane, was Ninianne, was Nymenche; was Chwyfleian, Hwimleian, Chwibleian; who in turn was perhaps Gwyragedd Annwn. The figure was an enchantress, a wanderer of pallid countenance, was Wild Man, was body of water and boggy earth.
