Desolation Slow reflects on homelessness, geography, and abandonment. It’s both an artistic tone poem and a social inquiry; bringing essay cinema into the realm of documentary collage. Desolation Slow is steeped in ballads recounting homelessness through the voice of Joe Ortega, a formerly homeless resident who’s now permanently off the streets. Joe is among the 5% of Utah’s homeless population who’ve been helped by the state’s Housing First program as he was given a permanent apartment. Desolation Slow brings the moving image viewer into contact with a variety of artifacts, landscapes, and people to ponder connections between human and structural decay.
