Director Statement

During the last 2 months of 2019 and the first 2 months of 2020 I started to use my phone to record moments between me and my friends. The footage from that time became very important to me and the people around me since Covid changed our entire lives. Since I’ve made an intentional effort to document my life and the people in it.
Using my phone as my primary source of documenting my life has freed up some of my previous hesitation with recording my friends and family. While watching this film. I want the viewer to experience a glimpse of my life. To witness the smiles and bits of joy. The small moment of being in between where we started and where we want to be.
