Director Statement

"Cycles" was a very therapeutic film for me to make. Throughout the pandemic, my mental health spiraled as I dealt with isolation and other issues. The height of my depression and anxiety during this time felt like a constant cycle of suffering. I found myself writing "Cycles" as a way to cope and process what I had gone through.
