From the creator:

The Wanderer is my take on the giant-impact hypothesis , a collision event between Theia (ancient planet) and Gaia (proto-earth) that is thought to have birthed the moon and changed Earth to be as we know it. 

This film is an ode to the moon as our earth’s oldest companion. 

The visuals are paired with Eden Ahbez​​​​​​​’ poem “La Mar’ (The Sea). In The Wanderer I’ve brought together what I think the moon inspires, a coming together of science and poetry, biology and history, nature and art.
