About

“It's an amazing short film in that it elicits  perspectives of  things greater than oneself. (Like the end of the planet or the magic of the sun.)?

Leyna D’ancona

 For years I had been shooting with an iris attached to my lense creating a circle. The sun seemed to be a natural progression of the circle, especially its revolutions. The film is an accession into the heavens. Leaving the grittiness of the streets of construction and destruction behind this film was magically created from the soul of my spirit. The music was also magic that it glides the imagery into its many manifestations. This film is definitely the result of the magic of cinema capturing a spirit of space that would make George Melies cry in wonder. DA

“Beautiful imagery, Dominic – of what feels to me like the perennial balance of life-giving and destructive forces; which is to say, that being inclined to somewhat dark views these days, I do see in this the powerful threat and peril of the unspeakably-beautiful-but-wholly-indifferent universe.  ... Still, the light prevails (with or without us)!”—Marilyn Brakhage
