Director Statement

Rachel Arena's film, "Passing," acts as a memorial to her father and engages the viewer with her experience of family, loss, and personal memory. She uses a photo-transfer technique to capture traces of the video footage of her home. A soundscape cut from home videos mimics the noises of an active house with static that keeps it distant in the past. The fall of a coat considers the irreversibility of loss.
