Fearful Supersymmetry

This film and installation recreates the last moments of a fictional polar explorer set against the grand environmental tragedy of the Arctic. A solo adventurer in the 1900s is lost and dying. As he fights to stay alive, reality and hallucination blend, and he is visited by his doppelgänger from the future, a time when the Polar ice has melted. Location footage (to be shot on an Arctic expedition) and studio footage (macro, time-lapse) will be woven together to create this dreamlike world.
