Abstract/Artist's Statement

For my senior thesis, I completed an experimental documentary exploring the use of Hindu mythology to create personal identity. The film explores 5 interviews with Hindus based in Southern India, who tell me about their favorite mythologies or their very personal stories that have, in a way, become mythologies. Once I returned from India, I animated the interviews, to put the film in a different realm. My reason for animating was that I wanted to play with the film conceptually the way that I did logically. In the end, it does not matter if the stories are true or false, it only matters that they influence the storytellers and their lives.
