During the years of 2016 and 2017, I only finished shooting one roll of Reg8mm, and sometimes I only shot a couple feet in the period of one to two months. In the year of 2020, I finally got a chance to digest what I have shot during those years. Out of my surprise, I cannot remember where and why I captured those images. Nevertheless, one thing I remember specifically is that the scenes were all taken in the afternoons. Therefore, I name this project as: Afternoon(s).

a chasm—
time splintered and the future abruptly fell out of existence, dragging echos of the present with it. vestiges of a life lingered, then too, curled away and dissipated. the sun emerged each morning, sharpening the edges of every thing, painting the world in high definition that caused pain behind the eyes. internal fear mirrored the endless sky, became an imposing saturated blue stretching towards the horizon, swallowing broken shards of reality—an infinite vacuum, greedy and thankless.

Occupying gaps in memory and history, Blue Distance serves as a personal and poetic intervention into the filmmaker’s familial immigration story. The film places in communion the mythic powers of cinema and the production of personal & cultural histories. Underpinning these tensions is the immigratory reality of occupying stolen land while trying to secure one’s own actualization.

For many descendants of immigrants, the throughline to their motherland is often found through food. Those who hail from colonies past and present may often find their culinary heritage is one borne through blood, tears, and hope. In this short documentary, Jonathan Burton, a 1st generation Guyanese, prepares Curry Beef, a dish spread internationally through british imperialism, for his grandmother as she speaks about her experience living in Guyana during its colonial era and the time after. Through this, one may experience two cultures simultaneously, that of a 3rd culture descendant seeking to grasp onto his heritage and one born from the source.
