Taking its name from a poem by the late filmmaker Jonathan Schwartz, On Fire in a Body of Water is a one-night experimental film screening, presenting thirteen contemporary moving image works in Telluride, Colorado. The program speaks to daydreams, disillusions and anxieties of the North American landscape, reverberating the seismic ground in which our world continues to shift.
