    Clouded Yellow is a 16mm film immersed in the more-than-human lifeworlds between Portland Bill and Weston, on the Isle of Portland.

    Responding to a series of visits to the Portland Bird Observatory and field centre, the film attunes to the rhythms and perspectives of migratory birds, moths and butterflies recorded at the observatory. The structure and pace of the film is determined by fieldwork, sightings and ringings, and follows artist Nancy Holt’s embodied approach, who visited the island in 1969.
