Synopsis: Four Hand Bloodstock is a landscape film about Sam, who while dealing with the declining health of his wife, June, interacts with the landscape of New Mexico.
Four Hand Bloodstock plays with the themes of time and space through experimental camera work and sound design to express the transitioning moods of the couples’ experience with June’s awaited journey to death. Four Hand Bloodstock makes the landscape a character within the film, giving time and space a story just as much as the characters themselves.
The tone is tranquil with moments of depression and panic. The film has elements that include the history of the New Mexican landscape, the Tigua Indians and Pueblos.
Sam (early 30s) – is fearful of loosing his wife to a rare bacterial disease. Sam leaves their cabin home to travel across the New Mexican landscape, accompanied by visions of his wife. Sam eventually arrives at a Native American pueblo and performs a death ceremony.
June (early 30s) – has been diagnosed with a rare bacterial infection and as her condition worsens, June becomes more fearful. Her once optimistic views of life are dissolving more quickly than her health.
These are PAID roles in addition to Film Credit, DVD Copy, Meals, Snacks, Beverages and Transportation Provided.
