Here is an excerpt from Califia, a short film by Quintan Wikswo. Quintan uses an altered video camera to achieve fascinating and beautiful effects. The final film will have poetic text by Quintan delving into impressions and emotions around the European colonization of California. The piece is still in process and there may be a live performance version with the Group Motion Dance Company in Philadelphia, choreographed by Manfred Fischbeck. Gloria recorded a session of improvised violin sounds, which were layered and arranged for the film by composer Andrea Clearfield.
