Stoking The Flame
Pull was filmed in Slovakia at Pajštún castle with Susanne Songi Greim. In a rental car, we drove across the Austrian border. After hiking up the mountain for over an hour with bags full of supplies, we wove into the trees and landscape surrounding the castle, drawing into the hill and melting ice just before sunset.
The project was filmed January 2020 and edited between March and May of 2021.
