Cindy Nguyen: “I made a film about my soulmate and creative partner. It is an intimate conversation about creating art, embracing change, and holding onto childlike wonder. I hope the film offers a moment to contemplate on the beauty and impermanence of life.”
Who are you? Are you the sum parts of your past selves, a dream for legacy and the hereafter, a vision for something more?
A film like no other, Meditations is an intimate conversation between two artists and soulmates. Quiet and contemplative, Meditations celebrates the beauty and impermanence of life. Eric Kim meditates on the hard questions of happiness, legacy, and art. He shares his hopes for himself and the world to embrace a sense of childlike wonder.

MISS READING / mis-reading
You translated me.
Rendered me visible, comprehensible, communicable
outside of that time and place where no words were exchanged,
only faraway glances, tensed shoulders, and clenched fists.
Gestures imbued with meaning: disappointment, guilt, exasperation.
