Dallas VideoFest will present the short film A Million Miles Away. Melancholy as a survival strategy in the American Midwest: An adult woman (the conductor) on the edge of failing and a pack of teenage girls (the choir) simultaneously experience a supernatural version of coming-of-age. The transformation is equal parts tense and tender. It unravels patiently to the infectious beat of an '80s era heavy metal anthem rearranged as a lamentation.
The film will play alongside In Light, In! and A Film is a Film is a Film.
