L O T U S

This is a story about transformation. Which simply put, is when change finds a form. With all the changes going on in our world today we felt like expressing this process in the form of art. Inspired by Angelika Furstler‘s near death experience we headed to the sacred Mayan underwater Cenotes to recreate her story while acknowledging the struggle, fear and anxiety that came along with it. We quickly learned the only way to pull this one off was to feel our way through every emotion for ourselves in what was one of the most experiential shooting processes I’ve ever been through. The whole thing was a whirlwind of tears, laughter and breath-holds amidst being immersed in what felt like the ultimate creation process. We invite you to let go of the mind and feel your way through it for yourself just as we did in finding our form for the film.
