Trauma Victim

A Civilized Self-Portrait


Based on the feelings I had (and footage I shot) summer 2001 in between Maximum Security Prisons across the US, this film's protagonist is yet another spider caught in its own solipsistic web as our civilization has instructed its spinning. I am taking the position of the Introvert who uses images in nature to tell Its story as a permanent adolescent idling through a life eternally half-lived.
