Director Statement

Influenced by my time in quarantine in 2020 and the emotional journey it offered me, I wanted to create a piece that was fueled by breath as the only soundtrack. My hope is that this creates an emotional ride for the viewer, moved by their own breath as they watch and listen to the film. It was also important to me that this was created by an all-female team as I’m an advocate for female empowerment and artistic voices to be heard.
