A One/Two/Many/World

| 15 min

A film of mixed cinematic metaphors made with students from Queen’s University and local neighborhood children - a portrait of a young boy’s journey of self-discovery in a bewildering world of contradictions and imposed conditions. Many of the sequences are surrealistic in effect, creating a social commentary expressed in symbolic language.

This film contains scenes of nudity and/or sexuality. Viewer discretion is advised.
