David Wilson’s Cal Arts thesis film is structured around a cycle of seasons, but each of its three parts also employs a variety of cinematic cycles. Even a film loop played over and over is not a closed circuit – it gets increasingly dirty and scratched, and will eventual break in the projector. In this way, David’s cycles are gradually developing processes which employ loops and repetition, but only as agents of change and development, like the seasons themselves.
