Filmmaker’s statement

I am interested in exploring how feelings of isolation and loneliness manage to permeate even densely populated, urban environments. Many of us long to travel, to explore the unknown or exotic, only to yearn for the safe and familiar upon arrival in foreign landscapes.

The short film Safelight is a visual poem that delves into this tug-of-war of the heart.
