Created during lockdown 2021 -this piece is my reflection on these challenging times that we are going through. Never before in my life have I witnessed such a time.
I feel us to be in a state of biological and information warfare, where friends are even turning against each other due to opposing views – where we are driven into a sense of confusion, fear and volatility. This film is dedicated to understanding our fragile place in this eco system of our planet earth and examining our place as a thread of humanity.
I am asking questions, I am looking for signs – I don’t really have any answers other than a faith in the power of music and art to sooth the worried soul.
