Jeremy Moss creates films that explore and interrogate bodies, identities, and places shaped by rigid boundaries and porous peripheries. Raised in the stark desert landscape of the American west, his formal engagements often stem from that severe arid terrain and the religion and culture that permeate the state of Utah. He approaches his work agnostically – there is no one true standard, mode, genre, or moving image technology – and he seeks to create new and alternative cinematic experiences, exploring the relationship between moving bodies and moving frames and the kinetic impact of sudden jolting juxtapositions, flickers, sonic swells, gaps, and glitches.
Trained in narrative filmmaking, his work has grown increasingly personal, lyrical, and structural. Recent and past films have exhibited widely at festivals throughout the globe, including Edinburgh, Chicago Underground, Brooklyn, Crossroads, Cinequest, Athens, Maryland and Anthology Film Archive in New York.
