Director Statement

(From An Exploration of Complex Beauty - Premiere Gallery Screening):

Minds do many things. They fill with light, they spill laughter, they love and become wretched with love - they endanger themselves, they spiral away from reality - they rationalize and grope around for answers and then cling to irrational things in the name of survival. Rarely do we see or let be seen the cacophony happening inside of us - it is hard to do! But it can be so important. It can be the difference between life and death. Accepting the complexity of ourselves and our strange brains. Airing the docile beauty and the horrific beauty that can torture inside one head if never given room to breathe.
My short film is born from my bewilderment at our minds' contradictions and from my lovingly sad commitment to make a compassionate space for the shit in our heads to get air.
