Imperceptible and unstoppable: the ageing process comes to life

The passage of time is often difficult to visualise, its effects so gradual they can be hard to perceive. We age but we don’t even notice it: in one photo, a child; in the next, an adult. In Danielle, the filmmaker Anthony Cerniello achieves a remarkable visual expression of ageing, animating still photos of various members of one family to depict a girl’s passage from childhood to old age.
