Solstice/Equinox was filmed at four solar points of the year: Summer Solstice, Autumn Equinox, Winter Solstice, and Spring Equinox. The film begins in June 2007 at Summer Solstice and culminates in March 2008 at Spring Equinox.

Filmed in Orbigny, France, the film looks due south into the upper reaches of a 300 year old oak tree in the Loire Valley. Over the 48 hours, one sees a transition through the seasons… rain, sun, snow, autumn leaves falling, birds careening, bugs buzzing, wind blowing.
