Most importantly, it's about how we can teach them to be proud of who they are no matter what the outside world does to try to tear them down.

Coda in G Minor

Coda (n): "A new theme introduced at the end of a musical composition to emphasise the sense of finality." Inspired by the films of Deco Dawson and Maya Deren, this silent, black & white film provides a brief, surrealistic glimpse into one moment of this woman's existence: the coda of her life. Is it an ending, or a place between?
