Experiencing Interruptions?


Reflection is a silent film based on a poem that analyzes the way we have created our physical world, and that world has also created us; we are shaped by the society in which we live. The personal journey expressed in Reflection is somewhat of a nightmare that turns into remembering oneself from the inside out.

Director Statement

'Reflection' came to me as a vision many years ago, and persisted in my mind until completion. The desire to create this film has shaped much of what my life looks like today. It's content pertains to our present-day society, and is important for our current political climate, as it expresses self identity issues and can relate on a global level. Without the confines of language, 'Reflection' is universally understood and personally experienced.
