Oregon 2017 67 mins.

Long-time animator Joanna Priestley, known for her fantastic shorts, has created her first feature inspired by winter landscapes of the North. Following a residency at the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture in Dawson City, Yukon, Priestley began work on an exploration of color and imagery in which intersecting lines and shapes came together to spark their own sense of connectedness. Composer and sound designer Jamie Haggerty emboldens Priestley’s images and zips the viewer along on a foray through this abstract representation of mysterious wintery worlds to the north.

Directors Joanna Priestley and Arianna Gazca will be in attendance.
