Alchemy (extract)

ALCHEMY-THE POETICS OF BREAD Trailer for Alchemy-the poetics of bread an award-winning short film I shot and edited with the Norwegian artist Eva Bakkeslett. Screened at Doc fortnight, Museum of Modern Art, NYC and various festivals.(Camera/editor) “A poetic evocation on the alchemy of bread brings the act of baking the most basic of staples, into a high art form. Here nature and human culture collude. Hands pounding, mixing, kneading and stretching, reveal the choreographed rhythms and movements of bread making. Alchemy is a beautifully executed and lyrical film about an activity once ubiquitous in almost every household.”
