THE WINTER THERE WAS VERY LITTLE SNOW is a visual mood poem using the barest narrative form to convey the feeling and time of crisis for a man in middle age. His marriage has collapsed, he is without a job, and his father has died. There is no reality; only an indistinguishable mixture of images and moments drawn from some space in time that could be his past, his present, or his future. THE WINTER is a document of a man's struggle to understand the meaning of his existence as he comes to the realization of his own mortality.
