Director Statement

When making this project, my grandfather was suffering from Alzheimer's, which would later take his life the following year. Memory has always been an integral part of my storytelling, and watching my grandfather lose his mind deeply affected me.
This personal project reflects upon the devastating effects Alzheimer's has through an exploration of our perception of time, technology, and aboriginal symbolism.
