NOX

NOX

 

Director: Mireille Heidbreder |  8m 12s  | World Premiere | Animation |  2020 

Country: USA |  Language: English

NOX is a sensory experimental film in which I use a combination of archival and own film prints and digital footage to “re-imagine” moments in which a shift in the balance of the human/natural world has occurred. In it, a lone hill above a town is revealed to be an active volcano, a destructive tornado seemingly intentionally repeats its path through a neighborhood, and a hurricane forces its way over a mountain. A layered soundscape of my own creation stands as an individual “character”.
