Two Sunsets

“Two Sunsets” (2020) is an experimental film essay, framed by 2 photographs of a sunset Golfer discovered in a box of his dad’s belongings, 10 years after his death. The mysterious provenance of the 2 pictures permeates the film in multiple imagined conversations unfurling across time and space: between Golfer’s cousin (a 24 year-old recovering from addiction) and River Phoenix; and between Golfer and his deceased father. These exchanges take place amidst the backdrop of the northern Arizona landscape, where a 50-year old NASA crater field engineered to replicate the lunar surface has eroded and been forgotten.
