Mountains are burning, two children climb through the riverbed over slippery stones, cattle owners trim and soap their most prized steers for the show, something has turned a body of water into a boneyard.
Taking its name from a poem by the late filmmaker Jonathan Schwartz, On Fire in a Body of Water is a one-night experimental film screening, presenting thirteen contemporary moving image works in Telluride, Colorado. The program speaks to daydreams, disillusions, and anxieties of the North American landscape, reverberating the seismic ground in which our world continues to shift.
It takes place at the Telluride Transfer Warehouse 201 S Fir on August 2, 2021, at 6:30pm.
Cinema Professor Erin Espelie, Alumni Christin Turner, and current MFA student Eileen Roschina will be screening work. Check out the webpage here for more details.
