Sunday in Mojave
Marcus Harrling

In this film we follow the life of Los Angeles citizen Lucas Quigley a couple of days in late fall. Halloween is spent carving pumpkin as the streets turn in to a carnival of joyful noise. Lucas drives his car out to Joshua Tree National park for some days camping. While hiking he runs into a group of more experienced oldies. They warn him that there might be a cold-front coming. On the surface this is about the surroundings he inhabits and explores. In order to make a film driven by image and duration, the structure of a traditional narrative is used to create expectations of events that in the end are left out.
