LUMA: A Meditation on Independence

An audio-visual reconstruction of my dreams in the year 2011, Luma acts as my own personal, experimental method of meditation on film. A story of transformation from dependent female to independent female, this work documents a woman's journey towards finding herself while exploring themes of rebirth, reflection and out-of-body experience.
