2015 Films: Excising The Heart

Excising The Heart by Samuel Karow
Wisconsin (MKE Premiere)
Running Time: 5 minutes
Screening Time: Friiday, Sept 11th 6:30pm 

Experimental 


This visual journey through one barn's demolition offers a reflection on time, decay, and man's ever-changing relationship to nature.




Director Bio: 

Samuel Karow is a video artist based in Central Wisconsin. In 2011 he received his BFA from UW-Milwaukee's Department of Film. Specializing in documentaries, Karow seeks to capture genuine moments of beauty, intimacy, and conflict. When given ample time for discovery, he finds that the ordinary becomes quite extraordinary.

Karow's work has been been exhibited nationally and internationally. His award-winning short film “3 Miles East” was included in the 64th Cannes Film Festival Court Metrage. 






Director’s Statement

Some say a barn is like a cathedral; a vast expanse of space holding back the elements, connecting people to a larger power. A tie to nature. A link to the past.

Every church has its priest. That was the role my grandfather assumed. Raised on a small dairy farm that saw three generations living and working together, he knew such places to be sacred. They represented the heart of a farm, the livelihood of a family.

Only after his death did the barn succumb to ruin. I wish I could have saved it, but it was not mine to save. I never milked a cow, bundled hay, or shoveled manure. No, this was my childhood playhouse. A place of fantasy.

For a time, we kept the barn propped up as an oversized lawn ornament, but soon discovered a thin coat of red paint does little to mend a leaking roof and crumbling foundation.

It takes a truly symbiotic bond for a barn to endure. When this bond breaks, we, the surviving heathens, are forced to choose between slow rot and swift destruction. We chose the latter. This film serves as my personal documentation of the process.
