When I was younger,
I remember going to Church for confessions.
Today, instead I meditate.

A visual meditation on love, pain, fear, and forgiveness - interweaving super - 8 images of Chinatown and allusions to Catholic confessions and Buddhism - this experimental video explores the authenticity and authorship of love and self-love, identity, culture, gender, media, divinity and spirituality as we struggle to find peace and serenity in our day-to-day existence.
