Berlin streets before dawn. A woman in one of the apartments observes herself in the bathroom mirror. A voice-over reveals she is questioning her societal value, contemplating ways in which she could move forward, regardless of structures that constrain her.

SACRED FIRE WITHIN is a meditation on identity, age, success and expectations connected to those questions. The work exercises the aesthetic of product imagery and its association with newness and promise. Rooted in autobiography the film is raw, imperfect confession oscillating between personal and generic experience of capitalism.
