Director Statement

The inspiration for this short film came from a trip to the Colombian Amazon. My second child was not yet of this world, but I saw him in a dream. My wife stood upon the shore of the Amazonian River and I could see a child’s face on her belly. The vision was so striking. A woman, the portal from Soul to Earth stood on a lush backdrop of Jungle. Time spent with a Shaman reinforced a view I always had as a child; how ill equipped we are to survive in our own birthplace. Most of mankind simply lacks the education and experience, the connection. This short film takes place around one single monologue where the disenfranchised Human is confronted with the need to survive in a world she does not know, and ultimately realizes that nature provides. Mama is all around us. I hope you enjoy this love story to our Mothers', and the greatest one of all; Mother Earth.
