Morte et Dabo holds two meanings in Latin. 'Gift of Death' describes a sacrifice,
     for the sake of humanity. "Death, I give you" conveys an act of mercy, to end the suffering.

Inspired by a poem titled 'A Dying Gay Man', the film recites my grief at the height of the AIDS crisis.
      I saw my future dire with thoughts of death on so many levels and foresaw a doom that people neither recognized nor empathized with.
                                         I still remorse the loss of life from that time.

I began collecting floral imagery 15 years ago without understanding the significance until
I rediscovered the poem I wrote at a young age.  The words harmonized with the idea of menacing insects that perforated my imagination.  The looming sensation culminates into a historic premonition of the inevitable,  as homage to the fallen since the strife of this era.

The Gift is the realization that all those people who died gave notice to the world that
I exist.  From that time on, activism flourished to offer solace to a community deeply scarred.  Although I am seen as relevant and equal, more work needs to be done.

  This film expresses my lament as a survivor from an era almost forgotten.
