The Lanthanide Series. Erin Espelie. 2014, 70 minutes, Color, Sound, HD digital video & 16mm film mastered to DCP
From the portals of personal computing devices to ancient obsidian mirrors, optical instruments control how people see, foresee, frame, record, and remember their lives. The Lanthanide Series meditates on how we understand the world through such material means, with a reliance on history, the Periodic Table, and the people we love.
The last Nomad. Liu Zhuwang. 2019. 8'

In the face of climate change and environmental degradation, the herdsmen of Sanjiangyuan at the Longge Village began to protect their land, spontaneously. They are now taking photography to document their flying way of life, through their own eyes and photo lenses.
