Description

Yellow Gold compares living cycles in agriculture to question the lengths in which we implement technology and the results observed in a closed ecosystem. This short film gives voice to a landscape affected by the strain of economics and explores the effect that modern agricultural methods have on the living cycle of our food supply.

Budget: $121.72

Camera: Canon 70D


Director's Bio

Cristen Leifheit is a moving image artist. With a strong background in photography, she has expanded her knowledge of the single photographic image to create highly crafted image sequences. Her films have been screened in various galleries and festivals across the US and Europe. The videos emphasize bugs and animals as characters and themes that include paranoia, the cyclical, and survival. Cristen’s recent work has evolved to include technology’s role in the interruption of natural cycles and the transformation of the physical landscape.
