I1 was made a few years back when I was exploring the idea of moving visual poems. I was working on making this as short as possible so It could be played on a loop. During the making of it I cut my finger open and had to get stitches (Which if you look closely you will find in this film). I was also going through a personal crisis and I was looking for something calm.
Shortly after this I met Maverick Independent filmmaker Jon Jost which would become a decade long collaborator. It was experimentally work that I first fell in love with but it would a frustration with the current political climate under the Bush administration that would drive our narrative work.
