E-Møtion Machine + Cycles

An ode to the nomadic experience of emotion, a foray into love and fear. A transformative experience that leaves us renewed and prepared for the journey of life. A story inspired by home, lived experience and light. “Be” and it is, was and is the mantra looping in our minds.
Heeding and accepting the lessons of the past, immersed and focused on the present, we look on to the future with our heads held high.
This film is an introspective dive into reality, the conscious and subconscious mind. Leading us to the realization that we are one being in spacetime, a being we are all capable of influencing. An unconventional video format proved to be necessary in capturing the dynamic processes involved with emotions. In this attempt to capture the rhythm of life we ask you to tune your heart in and let yourself be taken into the experience.
