After finishing the Sisterhood (2006) I wanted to dive into a storytelling format that was based entirely off of images with no dialogue. This is the result. I wrote the script initially off of a poem about a panther trapped in a cage. Bringing the poem to life in a relatable way while preserving the "poetic" feel of the piece was a big priority. I love poetry but I wanted this to also be a very everyman/layman film so that someone who had not a poetic bone in their body could enjoy and think on.
The shoot entailed a very small crew and just 8 hours of shooting.
