An ode to the environments we create for ourselves and by connecting with others encapsulating the human drive to express oneself. Helmed by profoundly deaf, non-verbal newcomer Emawayat' Emi' Elmitt, the film is centred around Emi's use of contemporary dance, signs, and shapes.

“I wanted to explore the language of patterns in nature and how it has impacted the look of this collection. As a director, I yearn for new perspectives, and this project offered me a wonderful new muse Emi Elmit.” Shannon Murphy shares. “In all my work throughout my theatre and film career, I have been exploring what can be communicated without the spoken word, and Emi was the perfect person to play our lead for this because she has such an incredible screen presence, strength and beauty to her.”
