REFLECTIONS addresses the struggle for dominance and survival.
Traditionally, Chinese lion dances at festivals bring good luck and drive away misfortune. However, in this short film, the lions represent dual roles of heroism and inner demons for a man coming to terms with his identity in a land that may never embrace him. The lion mask for him embodies a false sense of defiance, of power. Ultimately, when the mask is stripped of its outer skin, he is left unadorned to face his truths.
 
This is a film inspired by a larger interdisciplinary dance theater work of the same name that premiered in San Francisco September 2011 and in New York October 2011.
