Lifted entirely from a woman’s journal, her feelings are visualized to reflect the various emotional peaks and troughs she goes through. 

Director Statement

The words in the film were lifted entirely from Darby’s journal. With her being the writer/star of the film, I felt a tremendous responsibility to uphold the intention of what she wanted to express. I wanted the visual aspect of the piece to reflect the various emotional peaks and troughs she goes through without being too on the nose. It was an interesting balance because we had to shoot everything essentially twice, once for the beginning of the film (static, quiet, dark) and once for the end (handheld, excited, light). It was a wonderful journey to be able to explore these ideas with Darby and be able to share them with you!
