Alice Wang: Dead-light

Alice Wang (UCSB): $1,000 for Dead-light. Mini-Grant

Dead-light is an episodic experimental film that re-imagines the Cold War through unseen resonances of history. The film converges theoretical physics and Chinese metaphysics into a meandering chronicle that shifts into and out of literature, speculation, and documentary. For one episode, I’m developing a screenplay, casting invisible resonances in space as the central characters. I will create costumes and props, and choreograph movements for dancers to personify the palpable forces of nature.
