The song 'Because' is an anthem for present-tense living. A proposal to not get caught up in the desperation of results, but to communicate in both art and life with clarity, endurance, and patience. Amidst our human tendency to analyze the past and anticipate the future, it is a reminder to inhabit the moment we are in. The film is an homage to home movies and music videos from the 1980s. These disparate vignettes represent the many shades of our memories. Sometimes literal, sometimes allegorical. Sometimes clear, sometimes crude. It is a collage of both the conscious and subconscious.
