Director Biography - Tristan Zack Golden

I'm from New Mexico, in Albuquerque, and I come from both Pueblo and the Navajo state. I've been in awe of horror literature, and short stories, that made me at a small age, wonder about social ideas and humanity in an imaginary way and make me fall in depth with my own imagination. I've sketched and brainstormed through stories and small dialogues to help me understand the hostilities that were around at a small age. I've written many short stories that keep me going and take the human experience in more wonder than in previous years, especially during my young-adult life relying on fears that keep me in wonder rather up at night.

Director Statement

Since the internet is the new way of taking, interpreting, and sometimes experiencing life through others in a new dark age, much like the previous generation that they lived in, I think it's important to help young generations confidently interpret their own beliefs instead of fearing what recent traditions, or old social expectations say about controlling and fearing of making sure our civilization is “civilized”, and controlled.
Surrounded by the overwhelming fear of the growing development of social media, and technology, and how much they feel it has invaded daily life, and recent social traditions. To the point it has almost felt like any person, stranger, that has followed us, we practically end up letting people into our own home; the home represents protection from outside forces, and the accounts on the internet are instead the opposite where we encourage people from all across the world to come inside and see what we want them to see. But even if those are just highlights of our life, they are still reaching into private thoughts, ideas, and personal desires that we unconsciously show on our accounts that the improvements that we make can still be used by those who wish to cause harm to others. And to themselves.
