All This Can Happen, new film by award-winning artists Siobhan Davies and David Hinton, takes a meditative walk through the everyday, following in the footsteps of the protagonist from the short story The Walk (1917) by Robert Walser.
A series of small adventures and chance encounters take the walker from idiosyncratic observations of ordinary events towards a deeper pondering on the comedy, heartbreak and ceaseless variety of life.
Made entirely from early archive photographs and footage from the earliest days of cinema, All This Can Happen uses a variety of split-screen techniques, as well as constantly changing speeds and densities of images, to render an eccentric journey of the mind.

Responding so appropriately and with such originality to Walser's words, David and Siobhan have created a glorious fantasy of the modern world, a dream of modernist sensibility that engages with the mind and machines and madness, sexuality and shopping, poetry and photography and (obliquely) politics, city and country, culture and nature, ways of moving and ways of seeing. - John Wyver
