UK | 8' | 2003 | David Hinton in collaboration with Rosemary Lee

Snow is created entirely from historical archive footage in collaboration with choreographer Rosemary Lee. The movements of people change in the wintertime on ice and snow. 

Archival footage of winter antics from the 1890s to the 1960s is cut and re-combined to create a rhythmic choreography of gesture and action, on the slippery sidewalks and slopes of a bygone era. Originally commissioned Arts Council England, the BBC and NPS for the last Dance for the Camera series, the film is created from fragments of black and white archive footage from the 1890s to 1960s of ordinary people moving on the snow or ice.
