This is a short film that I created, based off a short story I wrote. I’ve always been interested in space and I wanted to make a film that really taps into that intrinsic nature of humans to ‘find home’. A pivotal point of focus in the film, the Earth, is something that all of us can relate to – and the lack of dialogue and minimal words means that the film can be watched and (hopefully) understood by almost anyone regardless of age, race or other differences.
