A Box of His Own
Add to selectionDownload PDF
 

A man has an unusual dream. His mother interprets it as a message from his ancestors, calling him back to the place he was born. He visits family he has never met and records his trip with a video camera. When he returns, he constructs a box in the middle of his living room. The inside of the box resembles a peep-show closet. The images pass in front of him and it isn't long before he forgets why he built the box in the first place.
