plant portals: breath


Short Film

portal 1.00_03_55_19.Still004.jpg

"plant portals: breath" is an experimental meditation on the unspoken history many queer and trans people of colour carry daily, connecting bumblebees, colonial trauma, alternate universes and the complicated concept of "rest" to ask: Can nature heal us?


Shot entirely on an iPhone, the film is intentional in imagining what is possible, and manifests a reality rooted in mindfulness.

"The film is an experience where each time you click play you discover a new aspect to mull over and appreciate. The juxtaposition of phrases and images is expertly done. ... The mastery of their words is breathtaking."
