38 River Road - The voice of a figureless character is heard. The figure of a voiceless character is seen. A sequence of estranged voicemails is framed by unidentified events. Fear resides in the gesture of a telling.

Josh Weissbach is an American experimental filmmaker. He lives in a house next to an abandoned village in Moodus, Connecticut with his wife, two daughters, and two cats.

His 16mm films and digital videos have been shown worldwide in such venues as AnnArbor Film Festival, 25 FPS Festival, and Berlin International Directors Lounge. He has won jury prizes at ICDOCS, $100 Film Festival, Onion City Experimental Film and Video Festival, and Haverhill Experimental Film Festival.
