Josefle, 2017
Video, 4:27

Josefle is a film that I made after my father passed away to reflect on the time he spent between worlds before moving on. When I was looking for a sound that could suggest the regular, mechanical breathing aided by a hospital machine, I found that the movement of my hand across a tablecloth would do just that. It also seemed like a caress, a gesture of staying connected. The moving images are interspersed by still images of mountain landscapes, images my father might have seen with his inner eye as he was travelling across worlds.
