A richly textured piece, Prayer Flags evokes mythological and metaphysical meanings as it traces the attempts of a young mother to come to terms with the violent death of her son. Sensuous imagery interspersed with violent scenes of terror characterize the multi-layered imagery and sound of this video. A tribute to the primal mind.
