‘Renaissance’ is a film about the process one faces when going through a transition of one version of self to another, also known as a rebirth within self. This is something I myself have faced on the path of spiritual growth and development; expressed through a silent fashion film where the subject (Mariah Mckenzie) starts from a dark and unevolved version of self, transitioning to the Phoenix rising from the ashes, and into the light evolved self.
This film is dedicated to my process of constantly shedding who I am think I am to become who I am really meant to be.
