Balamir Nazlica short film Unconcealment II, inspired by German philosopher Martin Heidegger’s concept of unconcealment, invites spectators to explore nature and the cosmos through a visceral journey in light and darkness. Heidegger described unconcealment as “what appears from out of itself, in appearing shows itself, and in this self-showing manifests” (1).
Unconcealment II is not only visually striking, but Nazlica’s use of sound works to create a viewing experience that is both haunting and electrifying. Through the examination of changing landscapes, Nazlica’s short film also illuminates questions about time and space. In order to capture the changing of the seasons, the film was shot over six months in both Vermont and Maine.
