After he discovers his own dead body on a beach, Eyan sets out on a new chapter in life. However, he soon realizes that his past may not be as removed as he thought. The more he tries to move forward, the closer it seems to catch up to him. EYAN is about figuring out when to leave your past behind you so that you may continue to grow as an artist, even when your past has made you the person you are today.

Director’s Vision

Eyan and I began to talk about our lives post university, and the lack of direction we were both facing with our work. After many conversations, it became clear that there was a universal story in each of us. At a certain point, every artist needs to look at their past and decide how much of it is going to dictate their life moving forward. Even when we feel like we moved on, it sometimes seeps through the work we make, and can prevent us from fully progressing into our new selves. After hearing Eyan talk about his own past, and how it incorporated itself into his work, I knew there was a chance to create a film and tell a story that could resonate with an audience.

It’s a film about moving forward, but more importantly, to me it’s about creating something true with the people around you.
