Director Statement

One of the manifestations of my autism is hypersensitivity to noise. As society went into seclusion during the pandemic, the world grew quieter. I wasn’t so different anymore. As we emerge from our hibernation, thanks to the vaccines, I wonder how people will have changed. This film poses this question through three video poems.
