Elka Park

Dir. Gloria Chung 2014

A portrait of a place I know where, more than anything else, the changing of the seasons marks the time spent there.

Underpinning these tensions is the immigratory reality of occupying stolen land while trying to secure one’s own actualization.

Our Horizons

Dir. Charlotte Cayeux 2022

France 44 min
