Director’s Statement
I created a narrative build on a series of seemingly disconnected scenes all set in the Native American Reservation Pine Ridge in South Dakota, a community on a chaotic stand still. Its younger residents are the characters of my film, and what concerns them, that is the focus: sometimes an irretrievable past, sometimes a dream, sometimes the inner thoughts of an uncertain future. I strive for a cinema that tries to reach for some kind of understanding of life. The youth of Pine Ridge who I met during research and shooting has given me not only a deeper understanding of my film-making but has also effected my own understanding of life. Kind of like the butterfly effect, man. You know.
