Synopsis

The short film Break is a creative collaboration between visual artist Joan Perlman and noted composer Laurie Spiegel (The Hunger Games, The Expanding Universe (CD)). Break explores the transmuting relationship of ice and water in the north Atlantic off Iceland’s coast, through varying shots of a single act: glacial ice fragments violently struck by breaking waves in a stormy ocean. Images and field recordings of the ocean’s relentless force paired with Spiegel’s unsettling, otherworldly score evoke the troubling effects of an unseen human presence. Break is a meditation on the passage of time and fragility of matter. With powerful imagery and sound, its visual commentary alludes to inexorable loss and dissolution and infers the implications of a changing climate in the far north, and beyond.
