“Ever since I can remember, I’ve had this recurring dream in which a highly idealized version of our world is rubbed out by a crushing expanse of matter, which begins as a speck but goes on – expanding. This happens almost instantly, and then I wake up – feeling somehow responsible. When I awoke this morning that feeling was gone. In it’s place was nothingness.”

Exhibited at over two dozen international film festivals and markets across North, Central and South America, Europe, Southeast Asia and Australia.
