I’m gay but I come from a very conservative family. On top of that, I’m Whasian American so it is hard to identify with a specific ethnic group. This film was about people I’ve encountered while exploring my sexuality. Most of them let me down and the love I had for them was one sided. Ethan (the AI) represents those people. I think of myself as Mya. Isolated and struggling to fit in with her environment. I told this story to visually express everything I’ve internalized.
