An exhilarated guitar stumbles. The glow of the evening throws off its romantic disguise and reveals itself as the face of a hellish conflagration in California, covering hilltops and residential areas. Its brutal beauty turns the events into a cosmic and unreal incident. Using time-lapse, granular editing and drone sounds, Jeff Frost paints a world that is out of joint and makes it tangible in his impressive composition.

A face is being drawn with a pencil. The countenance of a woman emerges. Old and suddenly a girl again. In her bedroom the film of her life unfolds by key moments. Changes are made visible by the eraser and new drawings. The girl becomes a woman, a lover brings a storm of mystical and fantastical elements. The arrival of the child opens new dimensions not only in the room. The child scrutinises the world and looks right into our eyes.
