Not in Kansas Anymore

This is a film shot entirely on my cellphone. After recently moving away from Southern Suburbia for the first time, I wanted to explore the overwhelming, lonely, sometimes euphoric feeling when you don’t know anyone in the big city; sometimes longing for home, sometimes searching, sometimes dizzyingly happy. At 1:22 (added together to equal the number 5), this structural short incorporates a Matsuo Basho haiku. The film consists of seven different frames, another number significant for traditional haiku.
