Artist’s Statement:

When it came time to think of an idea for my eighth short film, I knew it had to be personal. With eight being my lucky number, I decided that it was important to pay tribute to my mother for all of her support throughout my journey as a creative. I envisioned one of the most pivotal moments in our relationship: move in day to college. That day was incredibly hard for me as it was the first time when I had to embrace a world without her. It was my step into adulthood. I knew this day was as hard for me, if not more so, as it was for her to see her youngest child now officially moved out of her life. For the imagery, I drew from the feelings I’d get when she’d left me in my dorm room just moments ago. I couldn’t unpack or do homework until I got one more hug. So I’d run to where she parked, hoping she hadn’t pulled out yet. Thankfully, whenever I’d get out to the parking lot, she’d still be there in her car. I’d knock on the window and ask for what I needed and she’d happily oblige. I knew those hugs meant to the world to her, too.
