In 50 words or less, what’s this film about?
This song is about a conflict of intimacy and trust—the fear of each as well as the need for each. The main character approaches trust, asks for intimacy with others, but never gains the courage himself to reach out. He remains safe, but invisible.
What inspired you to make this film?
I’m a composer and I love the connection between sound and image. I didn’t have a film to score so I made my own.
