The story behind the film

The film originally began as an act of salvaging shots that didn’t quite belong anywhere else. These moments were buried in folders inside folders. But as these quiet scraps of life revealed themselves through editing, this diaristic process became a meditative act of self-reflection. As I enter my last semester of school, the pressures of life begin to emerge. Taking risks feels scarier, and I’m suddenly feeling the expectations of the “real world” begin to weigh on me. The rediscovery of these fragmented memories in the process of this film gave me clarity and calm in between the anxieties of growing up. And through this, I can look back and make more sense of everything that seemed overwhelming at the time.
