SECOND ACT PROGRAM


FLORETS, 4min., USA, Dance/Music Video

Directed by David Javier

As I get older I keep realizing that so many things change in life. People go in and out. Trends go in and out. Relationships go in and out. We never know what our next path in life is and that’s what is so astonishing. I relate the Florets to life. They grow, they are a wish, they are alive, they fade away, and then we find new growth.
