Lost Lake
Collaboration with Van Barnes
2010, digital video

Filmed at the peak of autumn foliage in a rural midwestern US locale, this non-narrative collaboration between Zackary Drucker and Van Barnes posits beauty and fear as inextricable from the psyche of the American landscape. Contemplative moments and stunning vistas are jarringly punctuated with the vocabularies of witch hunts, hate crimes, and psychological violence.
