"Sky Breaking Clouds Falling" is a film-essay directed by Matvey Fiks to the music of folk guitarist Mason Lindahl. Fiks’s patrolling camera and Lindahl's acoustic guitar merge in a melancholy tune and create a poetic statement that resonates with the pandemic and its atmosphere.
A blinding police floodlight shines, similar to the beam of light flickering on and off from the camera. As an unwelcome witness, the lens observes the city streets from a single vantage point - a window of a passing car. Breaking the night and the privacy, the film unrolls an epic image of New York on the verge. The city’s nightlife is revealed in fragments, following lonely dwellers, wandering in masks, hurrying away, and escaping under the cover of the sky until it “breaks and clouds fall”. The year 2020.
* “Sky Breaking Clouds Falling” is from Mason Lindahl's "Kissing Rosy in The Rain” album (Tompkins square 2021). Pitchfork’s 7.7 review.
