A cinematographer and a poet become a filmmaking team with this intimate short film that suggests there is a usefulness to feeling broken.

Nik’s poems are really touching. Simple and direct words. His work feels similar to mine: we navigate the humans emotions and feelings. When I read his poem “Because I am broken”, I instantly had images in my mind. I knew I wanted to film it. It’s a match.
