Chile 2018 16 mins.

Filmed in the Andes and set in a geological universe of ancestral salt flats, volcanic deserts and colored lakes transform into a vibrating Ektachrome landscape, transformed through in-camera editing, complex 16mm pixelation and superimposition techniques into spaces that exist in a multitude of times simultaneously.



The Northwest Film Center recognizes and honors the Indigenous peoples of this region on whose ancestral lands the museum now stands. These include the Willamette Tumwater, Clackamas, Kathlemet, Molalla, Multnomah and Watlala Chinook Peoples and the Tualatin Kalapuya who today are part of the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde, and many other Native communities who made their homes along the Columbia River. We also want to recognize that Portland today is a community of many diverse Native peoples who continue to live and work here. We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities—past, present, future—and are grateful for their ongoing and vibrant presence.
