HEY CELESTIAL (2014)

Synopsis: (From the filmmaker) Shot in Paris, HEY CELESTIAL is a video capstone project based on the texts of Toni Morrison. It examines Morrison’s recurring character of the wild/wanton woman, using images of silence and absence to depict her in the isolation created by her freedom. I also tapped into my personal experience with suicidality and depression while working with the concepts of secluded madness, leaving and subsequent devastation, and an indifference to death.
