Tommy or Johnny or Ronny
A hybrid documentary about the Vietnam War, my great uncle, and the absurdity of familial shame.
Following the anecdotal stories my grandma told me about her brother during Vietnam, this documentary is an attempt at understanding what to do with those darker stories passed down through family.

"We multiplied and fought and gobbled until there was nothing left, and then we died." -Ursula K. Le Guin Some day, our trash will be the only thing that remains as the monument to our existence on Earth. That day, as Giovanni will soon come to find, might be a little too close for comfort.

"We go into holes in the ground, and come out somewhere else"
A surrealist film that moves through morphing visuals and shifting soundscapes, all attempting to induce a cerebral journey for the viewer to have no choice but to be along for. The visuals latch onto images of living, organic substances whilst being pushed along by jarring moments of artifice.
