About this submission
A Haitian-American woman wrestles with feelings of loss and disconnection brought on by her complete assimilation into American culture. Through a journey of family photos and cooking lessons with her mom, she tries to find the pathway back to Haiti - even though she has never been there and doesn't speak the language.
I am exploring the next step for this film and am looking for feedback on what's working. The VO and music are placeholders. I am going to see if I have footage of my meals in Haiti as I think that would tie nicely to my mom cooking. I am exploring adding an additional 30 seconds to 1 minute of my time in Haiti, but initially I liked leaving the beginning of my journey as the end of the film. I'm open to all feedback on this film as it is a personal exploration and it's hard to tell if my story will resonate with others. Thank you!
