“What was once solid must now flow. In Alone Sleeps the Water, Frozen She Awakes, crystalline patterns of ice melt in the sunshine. Playing with opacity and transparency, Sofia Petersen investigates, through analogue film stock, the surfaces above and below the ice cap of a river. Later, footprints on a snowy plain tell of a presence marking its trace.”
– Marius Hrdy, Alchemy Film & Moving Image, 2021
