An experimental self-portrait, MMXIII explores phenomenological subtlety, intersections of construct and verité, and the ways in which technology, landscape, and beauty coalesce. Here, an artist investigates moving images and the nature of image construction, blurring lines between cinema, still photography, and performance art.

"The utilitarian act of image-capturing coalescing with the otherworldly act of image-creating, projecting one back onto the other [...] blurring the realities of origin into a hazy smudge."
— Kevin Rakestraw, FILM PULSE
"A complete masterpiece." — Brandon Colvin, MICRO-WAVE CINEMA SERIES
"There is a beautiful balance between [the] visual and sound design, and ideas gently emerge as to how we relate to nature, technology, and the past. Somehow in the end, I felt more story and emotion watching MMXIII than in most films I see."
— Patrick Wang, director, THE GRIEF OF OTHERS
