Emily Van Loan


Emily Van Loan is an experimental filmmaker and artist. They create diaristic, autobiographical work about their own life with the intention of fostering connection. 

"the tender place where the world breaks" is a poetic, performative, diary film in six parts that depicts the experience of a mental breakdown that landed the artist in the hospital for three days. With its hand-manipulation of celluloid the tender place where the world breaks is the embodiment of a healing ritual.
