shot on location in iceland by award-winning director andrew thomas huang, the ten minute long film for “black lake” was commissioned by the museum of modern art, new york and debuted there earlier this year.

I am not a football fan. Like other institutions that overtly exclude women from their highest and most revered ranks, it isn’t worthy of my time. And it’s boring.
