Born from my own existential confusion which forced me to reconsider what I hold closest. (Are We) But Worm in the Dirt is an investigation into what drives us forward, and that which keeps us from merely dragging our feet when there are so many reasons to do so. While processing my own fears and questioning my own values I decided talking with strangers we share the streets with could provide at least a place to start. The views expressed by those interviewed are not my own, but the video aims to provide meditative pause on what stirs inside us when our world shakes. Only 3 of the many conversations I recorded have been included as I will continue to explore hope, fear and faith throughout my life and this video just one stop on that journey.
