Saying hello to fifth grade me.
I was always playing alone.
My dad was depressed.
The school was boring.
My teacher didn't know anything.
I did a lot of fantasizing.
I once took my neighbour's cat into my house but she run away.
I went to bed wearing an orthodontic gear.
Inspired by Jodorsky's Psychomagic,
In September 2020, I visited a place where I spent my childhood, disguised as a school kid, carrying a school bag packed with memories. I guided a cameraman through the path from my school and to my house. To say hello and goodbye to 11 years old me, a girl I have rejected to acknowledge. To say hello and goodbye to a place I never wanted to come back.
