Windkeeper (2023) is an in progress short shot on 8mm and 16mm film. Taking inspiration from Zhuangzi’s dream (”Now I do not know whether I was then a man dreaming I was a butterfly, or whether I am now a butterfly, dreaming I am a man”), Windkeeper explores the psychedelic reality of the innkeeper of a bed & breakfast.
