Elegy for A Glacier (AT/US/CAN 2023, 16min) is a narrative short film that follows a young glaciologist who gets called back to her remote home town to assess the local glacier for its prospective use as a ski resort. She soon finds herself confronted by her eco-activist mother who is willing to defend the glacier from destruction at all cost. A feminist anti-western set in a dying landscape.
