SHORT OF THE WEEK X TASSIO
A MEDITATIVE FILM ON BRAZILIAN SOLO SAILOR TASSIO AZAMBUJA.
While sailing alone this past year, the silence I felt petrified me. It opened up a great amount of insignificance in my own life. As a response to this, I set out to create this film exploring silence in a day and age infiltrated with busyness. We’ve become conditioned that the pursuit of fame and commercial success are the only ways we can be content. My hope is simply to propose an alternative. Living a life dedicated to the surrender of something greater than yourself. Something unknown.
