Pause (2017)

  • Frederika Allerfeldt
Pause (2017) emerged from my growing concern over the gap between Millennials and the natural world around them. Without a strong connection to our at-risk ecosystem we, as a generation capable of crucial change, may lack the motivation to act on its behalf.
We are constantly immersed in the pressures of a fast paced society, work deadlines, and the distractions of hyper-connectivity. Using slow sweeping shots of the Californian landscape, contrasted against rapid snippets of everyday experience, my film urges us to slow down and appreciate our environment, in the hope that we may realise the importance of protecting it.
