Director Statement

This project was born out of a request from a online global music festival for us to submit a 25 minute sound healing experience. Seeing as we live on beautiful Maui and had a little extra time on our hands with Covid and given the fact that the island was in lockdown with no tourists we took this opportunity to create something a little more special for our audience. It is totally experimental gorilla filmmaking on the fly! Our first time creating a film. Enjoy!
