Passing Place
Unfixed, images from a lifetime come to light, fleetingly, before decaying into darkness.

Animitas & Elías Querejeta Zine Eskola

“This film whispered in my ear. In a world obsessed with visibility, hi-resolution and perfect rendering it asks us to lean in, focus, and imagine what’s not there, what’s disappeared. Developing images with an age-old alchemical process, the filmmakers have created a touching portrait of our time, evoking our collective memory loss, our mourning and our nostalgia.”

Alone Sleeps the Water, Frozen She Awakes
As teardrops fall to snow, they freeze and break, with a sound.

“What was once solid must now flow. In Alone Sleeps the Water, Frozen She Awakes, crystalline patterns of ice melt in the sunshine. Playing with opacity and transparency, Sofia Petersen investigates, through analogue film stock, the surfaces above and below the ice cap of a river. Later, footprints on a snowy plain tell of a presence marking its trace.” – Marius Hrdy, Alchemy Film & Moving Image, 2021
