A short exploring music and movement as we follow the emotional journey of a pedestrian, a person of Asian descent, unseen by the world around them.

Director - Dawn Jones Redstone

A cinematic short set to Michelle Fujii and Walter Clarke's original taiko drum tracks illustrating the struggle of our Asian character to be seen. The struggle is both literal and metaphorical. Literal in that pedestrian safety in Portland’s Jade District, a four-lane busy thoroughfare in Portland, Oregon’s city center where multiple injuries and deaths have occurred due to years of neglect and infrastructural racism. Metaphorical as our main character’s transformation depicts the struggle of Black, Indigenous People of Color to be seen. The many forms of racism present in our society presents an unsafe environment in the United States. Our character’s frustration and anger reaches a fever pitch internally to manifest an emotional turning point and determination to remain unseen no longer resulting in joyful release and internal peace.
