ROOT is a feature-length film set within a series of dreamscapes. The Dreamer takes the viewer through a 13-part narrative set in the mountain west and southwest. The story begins at dawn, and runs through the course of a day, into nightfall. We end the journey full-circle with the birth of a new day. We also find that time and space are non-linear, and that life is filled with creative possibilities at every turn. The film blends genres of experimental and documentary filmmaking, music video and silent film. The integrative filmmaking approach speaks to the future of film, prompting action that jumps off the screen. Inspired by Chicano, Mestizo, Toltec, and Afrofuturist traditions, ROOT integrates artistic threads of surrealism, DIY grit, cultural futurism, and meta-realism.
