We Have Always Been on Fire

2018 | 6 min
Film by Sasha Wortzel | Song by Morgan Bassichis

Set in Fire Island dunes that have witnessed decades of cruising and dancing, performer/artist Morgan Bassichis casts a spell to conjure the island’s queer ghosts into the present. Blending found footage by queer nightlife documentarian Nelson Sullivan with Bassichis’s performance, We Have Always Been on Fire traces a queer lineage and engages with loss.
