Lee Christofis (Melbourne based writer/reviewer/critic), in a recent review used the word threnodies. I looked it up, I liked the definition, I thought about a two second flick film that might be able to ‘be’ this word…threnody – a poem or song of mourning or lamentation. A two second slip into the memory of (a) grief? Duration undisclosed. Textures variable. Vaguely I remember a phrase from a Deborah Hay book (?)…’in the quick of suffering’. Seems to apply here.
