Pwdre Ser the rot of stars (2018 | 6 minutes | COLOR | SOUND)

The film depicts an encounter with a mysterious, luminous, electrical substance.  Inspired equally by medieval accounts of visionary experiences and by 19th century photography of the invisible, Pwdre Ser joins Kirlian photography with hand-processed images.

Pwdre Ser is the Welsh name for a mythical substance that has been observed by many since the 1400’s.
