The Observers

The Observers (2012)

My Rating

Movie Info

The first feature-length work by acclaimed experimental filmmaker Jacqueline Goss, The Observers is a haunting, minimalist landscape film, in which the land and sky of Mt. Washington, New Hampshire form a varying frame for two climatologists as they go about the solitary and steadfast work of measuring and recording the weather. Shot over the course of a year on 16mm film, The Observers is based on the actual work of the Mount Washington Weather Observatory - one of the oldest weather stations

This is no documentary. It feels like a meditation about solitude and the extremes of nature, and perhaps a lament of sorts.

There are moments when the tedium loosens you to melt into the landscape, and you swear you can hear the moss on the rocks start talking.

The Observers creates a haunting sense of people engaged in an otherworldly duty-huddled over incomprehensible charts and dials, they seem like they're busy maintaining the clockwork mechanism of the world itself.

A semi-documentary essay of two female climatologists at work in a mountaintop weather station imbues nature and labor with a poetry of the seemingly eternal.
