Created by Siobhan Davies and filmmaker David Hinton in 2012, All This Can Happen is a film constructed entirely from archive photographs and footage from the earliest days of cinema.


Based on Robert Walser’s novella The Walk (1917), the film follows the footsteps of the protagonist as 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. A flickering dance of intriguing imagery brings to light the possibilities of ordinary movements from the everyday which appear, evolve and freeze before your eyes. Juxtapositions, different speeds and split frame techniques convey the walker’s state of mind as he encounters a world of hilarity, despair and ceaseless variety.


All This Can Happen has toured internationally across four continents screening at film festivals, cinemas, galleries and museums in cities including Rotterdam, Buenos Aires, Hong Kong, San Francisco and Berlin, among others. The film continues to tour internationally to high critical acclaim.

A historical masterpiece…I know nothing more complex, simple, flavoured, archaic, post-modern, in the same glimpse, than this film-mirror.’ (La Cinémathèque de la Danse)


But the reason to watch this film is not because it is artful and thoughtful, though it is that. It is because it restores us to our senses, because it touches – gently – both body and soul. To walk, it suggests, is to be in the world.’ (Aesthetica)


Davies and Hinton have achieved the near-impossible: a film both harrowing and full of levity, pathological and poignant, microscopic and expansive.’ (Sight & Sound)
