  • Dylan Coates presents the film House on Fire. An experimental stream of consciousness holding the content of memory, narrative and its relationship to visual grammar and film language. Birthing from a feeling of being lost in the world, House on Fire is a highly personal and autobiographical exploration in far reaching themes of loneliness, drug addiction, identity, dysfunctional relationships, gentrification and the overall vulnerability of the human state in a pure form. Taking inspiration from the classic cinematic poetry of Andrei Tarkovsky and Jonas Mekas, while still undoubtedly being a product of the post-modernist age, House on Fire tells many different stories in one abstract narrative, becoming more of a visual diary or poem than a short film.
