This is one of the most beautiful short films I’ve ever watched, made by filmmaker Brian Bolster. Magnificent in its still, poetic frames, spare narrative, and quiet, spacious edits, it’s a gorgeous telling of Oceanic Hotel winter caretaker Alexandra de Steiguer’s story, and the draw of living in an empty hotel in a weather lashed island, during the cold.
I’ve watched it around 15 times at this point, over the course of a couple of years. Every viewing reveals something more about the story. Absolutely worth 15 minutes of your time.
