Retrieval (Lead Camera, Stedicam Op)
Narrative short | Runtime 16’ | 2022
in post-production

RETRIEVAL is a lyrical short film that explores the process of a soul retrieval in the aftermath of sexual assault - the spiritual undertaking of bringing back a part of your soul that has been traumatically separated.

Holding the line between magic, fantasy, and grounded reality, the film asks the question: what sight of miraculous intervention do we need to conduct to seam together such a violent rupture?
