I made this short film in participation of the EYE Research Labs 2020. it was shown at the EYE Film Museum in Amsterdam on the 29th of February. The short reflects on my youth, where I used horror and thriller films as a distraction from my troubled home situation. The aesthetics of the film are a reference to Stephen King novels and films from the 80s, which I loved as a kid. I used found footage from a forest fire in the Lincoln National Park from 1953. I choose generic imagery of a fire, to evoke a feeling of alarm and discomfort from the viewer. The short film is narrated by Soren Narnia from the Knifepoint Horror Podcast. Music by Chan Walrus.
