Breathe by Aroha Pehi


"Inspired by my experiences of lockdown, I’ve created movement on film that represents my own exploration of words that come in a form of a poem. The poem is about breath and how, through my own journey, I had taken it for granted and helped me to overcome isolation. “To breathe is a necessity, is a luxury.” Words that I wrote down during the first lockdown, which was at the same time as the 2020 fires and still are so relevant to this day."

Breathe by Aroha Pehi is presented as a part of Duniya Behter.
