DESCRIPTION

Night Sky, a 62 minute narrative film with live musical accompaniment, follows two friends’ journey through the desert into a synesthetic realm of the senses. After their car breaks down, Cleo and Jay discover a small portal that leads to another dimension where a dance marathon never ends, time collapses, and exhaustion is rampant. The girls travel to a sound chamber deep in the desert, where they encounter a speaking dog that offers them a vision of their place in the universe.

In Night Sky, sound allows locations to collapse into one another. Places formerly encountered continue announcing their presence. The characters, the audience, the story meander together, constructing a traveling narrative. Relationships between people, color, sounds ambiguously rub against one another, forming synchronized dances, small explosions, and visions into other atmospheres.
