Vessels of Affliction (2019)

Humans have formed tribes since the beginning of our existence. It’s instinctive. They have leaders, followers and a shared responsibility to the health of a community. Were the spirit, soul and mind have the same importance. 


What happens when these same communities are displaced. Were fear is constant and safety is all but rare. What are the ramifications for the lost ones? Have gangs become the man’s modern tribe? 


'Vessels of Affliction' on one side shows the beauty and strength of people coming together vs the heartbreaking and frightening outcome of the same people under a failing system.
