78 Hours

1st prize winner of Henning Larsen Foundation’s international film competition on architecture and film.

Cole Phoenix Skaggs on his film: “This film attempts to capture one time cycle of the space as its transient occupants whirl through their lives. It silently holds firm a space of memories, atmospheres and emotions played out within its vessels. Time choreographs the space and Chopin’s Waltz No. 7 conducts the film. “Waltz” comes from the German word Waltzen, meaning to turn or revolve. A view from within offers only glimpses of what lies beyond as we move about and time passes firmly, leaving behind scenes of defeat, work and rest”.
