Any crisis, be it a failed relationship or a loved one’s death, leads one to question his own identity & Weltanschauung. What went wrong along the way? Would the world be my refuge, or my own version of hell? Pandora is a surreal, disjointed study of looking at the ways people cope with these questions. One can shut himself off from everything else, or one can lose himself among everything the world can offer, in an effort to repair his fragmented identity. In the end, the choice is a gamble; anything can open the floodgates to more pain & emptiness. Pandora says: ask & you shall receive; but what it is you’ll receive, you are never sure.

Pandora was part of a series of 4 youth-directed short films called Cyclorama, which dealt with the self's seach for identity & unanswered questions.

Stormy is the collaborative effort between Tara BoschSantelices & Joee Mejias. With Joee's background in production design & Tara's in political science, their works merge both surreal & challenging aesthetics & intelligent social/ideological commentary using different media, such as video,graphics, sketches, short stories,& music. They are inspired by such material as vintage science fiction, the surrealist & expressionist movements, Neo-Gramscian & queer theories, & industrial/electron ic music.

"Sakdal Laya"
by Tey Clamor
