Past Life: Blue Violet

1999, 13 min, color, sound

Another exploration in the Past Life series, Hodel recalls a life in Tibet and a love shared with her brother that cannot be matched; they are separated when he joins a monastery, and she is left to journey alone. We see Hodel's feet walking on a beach; the water erases her footprints, just as the passage of time obscures past events.
