The Mount is a short film made by the dance collective BODYSONNET in collaboration with videographer Alexa Carroll and composer McKinley Foster. A young conservator living in New York City continually encounters a man who seems vaguely familiar. The woman goes to The Mount to evaluate artworks at the deserted estate and garden. As the woman begins to lose herself in the amorous images and kaleidoscopic surroundings it becomes clear that the man is also inhabiting the mansion. As the figures bend farther from reality they begin to question: Is it more real to see or believe?
