Karl Lemieux: 'Quiet Zone'

Karl Lemieux

Karl Lemieux’ new film Quiet Zone (2015, 15’, 35mm) takes us into the world of people who suffer from electromagnetic hypersensitivity – a phenomenon whereby the fear of electricity and radiation takes over your life. These people have settled in West Virginia, US, around the Green Bank Observatory in the area known as the National Radio Quiet Zone. The sounds and images in Quiet Zone distort reality to sensitise us to the pain and distress of electro-sensitive people. Karl Lemieux screens his film – a hypnotic search for a radiation-free zone – and provides elucidation.
