The Deep Dark, 2011, 7 min

Laura Heit, Portland, OR

Films in Competition

An elliptical cinematic song cycle, The Deep Dark journeys into the psyche with animation, projected shadows, fleeting lights, and ethereal vocal incantations.

The film is composed of layers and cycles edited to early experiments of a looping rhythm and vocal track by songwriter and experimental musician Emily Lacy. Music was originally performed live and has been recorded in one track.


Directed by Laura Heit (Portland, OR)
