About this submission

Breathe is a one-man-band short, shot on iphone X, due to & during the COVID-19 lockdown of 2020. It's a love letter to my wife and an homage to Terence Malick's "Knight of Cups", using the 11th labor of Heracles (Golden apples of Hesperides) as a loose adaptation to tell the story of a physician struggling to return to the front lines of the pandemic amidst the death of his wife due to COVID-19. It was made for, and to include the Pacific Northwest Rainforest as an element as stipulated by, Austin Film Festival's "Films For the Forest" competition.
