Mother's Apricot Compote 

2020, Digital Video, 23 minutes and 35 seconds

A fragmentary narrative of two women whose lives are distant from each other yet hold traces of one another. This film conjures the ghosts that hover over the day-to-day lives of these two women; it is a rumination on the experience of the immigrant within and without the diaspora and the ways in which personal/familial memory seeps through the surface of every day life.

Sound in collaboration with Jamie Turner and SubPhonics.

Waiting for someone that never arrives, a woman walks through the streets taking on the city's rhythm.
