    La Région Centrale (1971, 180 minutes, 16mm) - Made over the course of five days on a deserted mountaintop in North Quebec, the vertical and horizontal alignment as well as the tracking speed of Snow's equipment was all determined by the camera's settings. Anchored to a tripod, the camera turned a complete 360 degrees, craned itself skyward, and circled in all directions. Because of the unconventional camera movement, the result was more than merely a document of the film location's landscape, as its themes became the cosmic relationships of space and time.
