Fevers of Unknown Origin (video loop) 6 minutes // 2016
Borrowing and combining techniques from modern contemplative cinema, radio plays, the hard-boiled detective genre, and Victorian ghost stories, "Fevers of Unknown Origin" is a looping experimental film about a strange manuscript found buried in the mountains. Its pages tell the story of a mysterious illness, a reluctant detective, and a case of psychic possession.

Music: Ravel's "Bolero" performed by the Philharmonia Orchestra
