Watch: A MYTH IN MOVEMENTS, a four-part visual essay

"A visual essay on culture, history and the act of physical filmmaking used to recreate memories, myths and images."

A Myth In Movements is a deeply personal film for me. It's about a lot of things. It's about riding the train in Chicago, which is how I get around. It's about the stasis of celluloid film. It's about the endurance of day-to-day life. It's about the horror of war. It's about dealing with a lost love. It's about the power of the image, when coupled with memories, ideas or thoughts. We create our own myths in this life. Here's a window into some of mine.
