Experiencing Interruptions?

Midnight Rhythms

In this conceptual, poetic narrative, a young gay man struggles with his sexual identity and spirals into the world of drunken facades and midnight afterthoughts, questioning who he is and if he's willing to take the risk to be his truest self where others can see.

Director Statement

Midnight Rhythms is an honest and vulnerable project, which includes a collection of poems about my personal journey of understanding and accepting my queer identity. My hope with this film is to not only create and solidify my voice within my own personal life but also share my story for others to connect with and see an expression of representation that is lacking.
