Quietly echoing CROSSROADS program 2, the films on this program explore elemental transubstantiations: air, fire, water and stone become one. Luminous and loving, life-affirming and elegiac. Meditations on the brevity of life, and on continuity, these works embody transformation and eternity. Melodramas of nature and contemplations of immateriality braid the intimate and introspective with the expansive and macrocosmic.
