Is there a hidden link between hydroelectricity, romance and alienation? Does the contemporary energy consumption have anything to do with the ways people experience their place in the world? This film does not provide answers to those questions but asks new ones in a very striking visual fashion. A mysterious film with hidden gifts.
Is there a hidden link between hydroelectricity, romance and alienation? Does the contemporary energy consumption have anything to do with the ways people experience their place in the world? Of course, we are (not) alone (?) in the universe but this does not mean that we may still—or at least try to—find some traces, some unexplored maps to the stars. Hidden networks that might link the subway arteries and the constellations. Mackenzie Reid Rostad composes a visual and visionary essay on the manifold possibilities still to be explored in the universe that feels at times like an extended jam session by such luminaries of the post-rock scene such as Godspeed You! Black Emperor or like an ambient tapestry by Stereolab. A mysterious film, gently haunted by an opaque beauty hidden in pictures that interweave themselves effortlessly into each other. This film does “not” provide answers to any question but asks new surprising ones in a very striking visual fashion. A fascinating and extremely creative film that plays with all the senses of the viewer.
