OSCILLATION TRANSIA FILM FESTIVAL is a non-profit traveling event, exploring the intersection of solar energy application and environmental awareness through the art of film.
Combining the love for nature and outdoor cinema, Oscillation Transia is screening works in outdoor and rural areas around the U.S. Films will be exploring both fictional and non-fictional themes of movement, nomadic living, adventure, and human connection to the natural world.
Oscillation Transia will be screening works by national and international filmmakers for its
4th annual tour in the contiguous
United States, summer/fall 2020.
We will be utilizing amphitheaters located within many parks, and also incorporating "pop-up" screenings in more rural locations. Using a projector and solar generator, we can screen in a wide range of remote areas -- usually uncharted territory for traditional film festivals.
There is a secret held in the substrate. And it whispers ‘wonder’ on a warm-wind-roll across the hills of the Overberg.
There is a pastoral church community cradled in these foothills. Children play and invent magical games in the yellow fields. And grandmother makes food on Sunday. There is no clutter only hearth. And there is an old soft spoken man who knows.
There is mastery at work. As he fixes gaze with a young boy across the harvest field, time slows; wisdom and youth bound in ambiguity across the intangible. The unease of their linear separation softened only by his poetry and presence. As he looks and dreams back and forth across the threshold of what was and what is to come, he knows.
He knows he is one and the same; both now and then, at once oscillating in some infinite loop.
And he longs for return.

To Jacques Naude creator of Overberg,
"Thank you for transporting everyone into a dream. Successfully rendering the importance of a place is something I admire. The saturated otherworldly feeling of your film causes anyone who watches it to pause, and remain starstruck. Even while questioning their own interpretations of your story, they felt undeniably impacted."
