The Outsider

The wind has turned and all is still now. Over there in the distance, old mountains hang their silent watch. Past, present, future — all of them are written here, and none. A lightness of being envelopes us; the audience, the seer and the seen. With profound honesty and a rare tenderness of vision, John Feely asks us into his narrative as it unfolds, insisting we look deeply and feel a kind of peace. What emerges from The Outsider, his long-form work made in Mongolia, is a withdrawal from the worldly world. These images speak of another place, almost imagined but certainly real — one in which community still is a thing, and life reveals itself with nature, not apart.
