An exploration of emotional transformation and the passage of time for Sabrina Song’s track “Thaw” by New York City-based director Zac Dov Wiesel (previously featured here):

“Thawing is a kind of sad hibernation, like you’ve built up layers of protection and defense mechanisms that need to be slowly melted away. Most important is the slowness, change doesn’t happen overnight and everything is fragile and uncertain and gradual.”

Warning: this video contains flashing images.
