History of Heat
History of Heat is an experimental LP composed, mixed and performed by Sadaf H Nava and released on Brooklyn based music label Blueberry records as a 12" Vinyl and online release in July 2019. It is the scholarship of heat, and the sources of its production: desire, exaltation, anticipation, fear, rage and mourning . It is a fable circulating through the nerves, pumped and distributed by its own mythologies.
Ditectrice (Excerpt) is a short film and visual accompaniment to the Album History of Heat. It is Directed by Sadaf H Nava in collaboration with Brazilian filmmaker Guille Santos. It was shot on 16mm and 8mm film in Spain and Los Angeles. The film was screened at Cannes Film Festival's Short Film Corner 2021 and simultaneously premiered on Showstudio's website. Ditectrice was awarded the British Short Film Awards Auteur Award in 2021.
