BOX

This is a 2021 version of the 2017 film. The film involves memory sequences using film to triumph and to connect The themes are about escape and reunion. The story is from my own life, and my association with Jeet Kune Do, Nature, and life long influences from friendship. I made the film alone, about the past, alive now, The fades to black and white line drawings that result in full color nature scenes are to suggest that impulse, memories and experience are circular when struggling to be whole with integrity, like seasons in nature.
