Director Statement

"The Mercy of the Moon" was inspired by a darker side of nostalgia. Both the song and the film reflect on how something beautiful will become something ominous and dark if it spirals out of control.

A big thank you to Saidy, Liam, Yanwen, and Alec who made this film possible through their help and encouragement.
