The Green Ray


A Green Ray that never features. Instead, we sense it – seeing beyond our own eyes, beyond the hills – we sense it for an instant. We are plunged into the unknowable, beyond the horizon, beyond seeing altogether.

In a single 11 minute take, the film takes us from lush sunsets. to beyond the green ray, and into the gloaming, into the heavy night's darkness, where we await the impending storm.

Originally featured in Sleep Has Her House, released as a standalone single-take film.
