The Wind Dies The Sun Sets

"The Wind Dies The Sun Sets", a short film made in collaboration with artist Joshua Reiman, is a contemplative consideration of energy extraction and use in Pennsylvania. The film follows three characters that are embedded within the business of fossil fuel. The Pennsylvania region has a long history of energy production, first associated with the industrial revolution, and presently with fracking. The film's emotional cadence shares the difficult realities of the altered landscape and the people who are involved. The film was captured with a Black Magic Digital Super 16 camera and edited with Final Cut Pro.
