This season we collaborated with a writer for the story line of our short film. “Still Cold” is an exploration of coldness and feeling fragile. Defining oneself at the point between childhood and adulthood – “Still Cold” is our refusal to be jaded by the world.
The house. The road. Like stone.
I walk around in it, it protects me, it shields me.
Cold like the stars.
I can feel myself growing colder.
I could possibly be fading.
Still, the moonlight is cold—
Winter’s fallen like dusk.
The cold hits my skin – a shell which is hollow inside.
I climb up through the barbed vines in the woods; the city is tangled with them, they try to wound me, but I carry a shield.
The night is cold, but the stars still light my way.
