Director Statement

This picture comes as the culmination of grappling with loss and death both on a personal and global scale and the concept of legacy and memory left behind. In this film, I largely sought to confront the fear of being forgotten by the people you
hold dearest to you and what will happen once the people that
remember you are gone. Ultimately, what it turned into is my personal way of saying goodbye to the many friends and family that I've lost, whom I never got the chance to say goodbye to.
