The Display Case

I made this film for a class, connecting to ideas/themes we discussed, including desktop filmmaking and problems of identity, perception, looking, and societal systems, the last connecting to my own ideas around habit (both on personal and societal levels) and the harms it can cause.

Director Biography - Hezekiah Fleck Sims

I have made several films over the past few years, including eight 2-10-minute films and the upcoming longer film "The Valerian Onion Affair." I believe that art has a critical role in shaping society, and it is my goal to question assumptions, finding what we take for granted and and dismantling societal habits in a playful, imaginative, but responsible and morally engaged way to open up possibilities for positive change.
