Chapter 5 is a screen dance film about a young man battling drug addiction and the tenuous balance between pleasure and self-demise. “In Chapter 5, I wanted to speak out on the issue of addiction as a way of healing the pain loved ones very dear to me went through, and unfortunately, lost their battle to this terrible predicament. With dialog replaced by movement, visuals and a wealth of sounds Chapter 5 is visceral and painful.”
