Doom was an example of not holding back, not filtering or dumbing down his intelligence & imagination, of being endlessly creative and recreating his own identity. What an example for us all as creatives.

“When you find community, you find yourself as well.”

@rizwanahmed reflects on the role of identity and finding community in SOUND OF METAL.

The pandemic has shown us the same thing that Ruben is shown in Sound of Metal, when he faces his own health crisis. There is no going it alone. Individualism can’t save you. Our well being and survival is based on each other.
