Safe Space is a film installation involving a childlike fort where people can enter to watch a film that talks directly to their inner child about the challenges they faced growing up.
This film and its process serve as a place where their inner child and younger self can understand what was happening, while simultaneously narrating the beauty that the future holds for them. Through this production, they explore how this violence affected them, and despite the persistent and constant presence of violence, people can continue to find forms of beauty and peace in their lives.
To visually and conceptually narrate this film, they would like to use the archive material their parents shot throughout their childhood and some other pictures and drawings they made.
