Behind the Sun

3min 32 sec
single-channel video, silent

Behind the Sun tells the story of a car breaking down on a country road. This ordinary event becomes strange because the world appears frozen as though time has stopped. Subtitles tell the same story three times with variations, suggesting how a memory can evolve over time. Each iteration of the story is separated by the same photograph of trees seen through the windshield of a car. The video was inspired by reading about personal accounts of individuals who have experienced distortions in the flow of time.
