“Breathtakingly rendered on 35mm film, the vast expanse of various Californian deserts provides a stage for the contemplative re-enactment of an Egyptian history. Based on archival research, Clark’s debut feature blends fact and fiction, the historical and the contemporary, and transcends cultural and geographical boundaries to reflect on the ongoing tensions between local and national politics. The hypnotic choral composition by Tom Challenger adds a meditative layer to the expressive stillness of the images. A profound and affecting audiovisual experience.” – EIFF 2017
