Director Statement :
Can we redeem the unfulfilled desires of our ancestors? Is remembering them and the stories they told enough? Thinking about the past often leaves us feeling nostalgic. I think of the unfinished novels, the paintings left behind, universities not attended, the trips that never taken. I try to explore how my family retells stories, and how these stories transcend memory and loss, the role art plays in this dynamic, and what it means to me as part of the youngest generation.
