Acadian Nights

https://vimeo.com/83268351 SYNOPSIS Marked by vibrant color, hypnotic interludes, and sensual appeal, Acadian Nights is an experiential art film inspired by the universality of dreams- particularly dreams of houses and the spaces that contain us. Elements of hybridization, collage, and animation blur the boundaries between fantasy and reality. Archetypes of family emerge from Weiss’s constructed images. The narrative is grounded in the cycle of waking and dreaming.

Almost There

https://vimeo.com/109723683 SYNOPSIS For many, Peter Anton’s house embodies an end-of-life nightmare: heat and electricity are shut off, floorboards are rotting, and the detritus of a chaotic life is precariously stacked to the ceiling. For the filmmakers, Anton’s home is a treasure trove, not to mention Anton himself, a character worthy of his own reality TV show. By its quietly satisfying ending, Almost There provides human drama, insights into mental illness, aging in America, and the redemptive power of art.
