This is a Ghost of Me

There is a Ghost of Me is a visual poem mourning the lost opportunities for betterment on both a personal and political level. The director muses on his rotting teeth as his wisdom tooth extraction coincides with the election of Trump. The rising rot in public life is mirrored in his body, and the death of his dreams for a better society becomes a ghost of what could have been, haunting places of political strife. In protests in the US capital, in the burning buildings of Lima in Peru, across the world, we are being haunted by the ghosts of our failed ideals.
