A speculative image tries in vain to capture the effect of an increasingly harsh climate on a deteriorating landscape. Two siblings return to their late father’s house for the last time, but they encounter an already unfamiliar environment in the place that holds their past. An old neighbor emerges, an enduring witness to the land, and tries to describe what’s happened to their way of life. WAIT FOR NIGHT is a triptych of loss in America’s Southwest.

A woman arrives home at the end of a regular day, but as she begins to turn in for the night, she is overcome with a sense of restlessness.
