Director Statement.
Epoch is a visual representation of our connection to earth and it's vulnerable glory.
Our time here is esoteric, limited and intangible.
The fragility which exists in all aspects of life is one thing that is certain.
We are brittle, and so is Mother Earth.

Do You Reverse?

1932 - United States of America.

 

Introductory intertitle reads: "Here's an odd fowl, that walks backward to go forward so she can look behind to see where she went!"

Shot of a little girl who the narrator tells us is called Mary O'Connor (note: this is American author Flannery O'Connor as a little girl) from Savannah, Georgia (at least that is what it sounds like). Mary holds a chicken which she lifts onto her shoulder. C/U of the chicken as it walks backwards. Narrator claims that this is the only chicken in the world that walks backwards.

It looks pretty realistic and then we see geese and ducks walking backwards too so it is presumably a camera trick using film reversal technique. Shots of cows and horses seeming to walk and trot backwards.
