Desert Miracles

Authors:
Miriam Gossing
Lina Sieckmann
Year: 2015
Length: 00:10:00
Categories: Film / TV / Video, experimental film
Project type: Diplom
'Desert Miracles' is a cinematic exploration of a commercialized architecture of desire. Across 22 different tableaus, the film meditates upon the interiors of Nevada’s wedding chapels, considering how the excessive scenery opens up to constitute a cultural organisation of “Love”. A woman’s’ voice is heard reading out an ambiguous letter to an unknown lover in which she finds herself troubled by the challenges of modern relationships, unable to negotiate a balance between self-fulfilment and optimization. The text is based on anonymous posts by different women in various internet wedding forums. One fictional female character is composed out of many assembled perspectives on desire, relationships and social expectations.
