Live Your Life is a video made in thrall to images, to the idea that cinema begins and ends with the image, all else is happenstance. Shot over the course of a year, on city streets and back-country roads, and made by layering multiple scenes atop one another, the film packs as much information into the frame as possible, attempting to achieve an imagery of abundance that would belie its ten-minute length.

In this age of the ephemeral, Live Your Life is an assertion that pictures are eternal. It’s a joyful paean to Gaia, the cinema, the human community, and life itself.
