Director Statement

"One of my biggest artistic inspirations as a filmmaker is the idea of the protagonists journey. I love how it can represent so many things, including transformation, synthesis, and achieving a greater understanding of life. In 'Body Seeking Soul,' I knew I wanted the journey to be experienced through the eyes of a genderless main character to symbolize the duality of my own identity as a gender non-conforming bisexual woman."
