Sok, a film.

Sourced from a short story, Sok, initially was written to study the behaviors of a woman, Emilia Aalto, who pitches her tent inside the back of her 1968 Ford Escort. The story follows her and her partner, Danny Landvik, traveling throughout Iceland examining the nomadic condition. Throughout the film Danny (ghostingly) disappears until in the last scene Emilia wakes up to their absence. In an underlying narrative the film dissects the double negative absence of a non-binary body in a societal structure that negates its existence.

Shot in 16mm film, the film will take three forms. A 16 minute film in length projected in the cinema with performance, a film to screened in entirety (with performance embedded), and a performance installation with x4 looped 16mm projectors in an exhibition space.
