WILL THE SECRET SWALLOW HER WHOLE?
The disembodied deception of a well kept secret is swallowing a little girl who sits on the outskirts of her breaking family. Can the love of a daughter cure an addiction charged with seduction and promise, and can she find the pieces to her scattered longings?
Inspired by the Poem “The Secret” by Belinda Hilton
I loved this poem about a secret message someone wants to express.
In my interpretation a little girl is trying to tell her daddy she loves him.
Unfortunately her father is struggling from an addiction and can not even see his daughter.
I’ve chosen to use images here to portray what is going on for the father instead of making a literal translation. Every viewer will come to their own conclusion with what’s plaguing him based on the strategically placed footage.
I could describe in detail what every single image here means.. but what would be the fun in that.
If you are so confused and just need to know what they all mean, feel free to email me.
