A story about Jay Kyle Petersen, a man who paints. Except it’s not that simple. At all. It’s about something much more complicated and strange and haunting and life-affirming. The film is a glimpse into the extraordinary and complex life of this abstract artist and his even more abstract past.


We spent nearly five years editing this project. It went from a 3 minute short to a 90 minute feature to a purely experimental piece to the final film. You can see our nice and tidy final timeline below:
