Compositions in Departure
34 mins.

Compositions in Departure weaves together three individuals from three different continents: one individual who has willingly departed their home (China), one facing the inability to leave (Ghana), and another who never wanted to leave but was left virtually alone (Mexico).  It explores displacement, architecture and the idea of home as a metaphor for finding one's place in this world, while using textiles, migration and imperialism as an analogy for patterns of human behavior. The film offers a common ground among all people through shared human experiences. Shot in both 16mm film and video, this visually layered film captures the individual stories with an emphasis on the aesthetics and essence of each location.
