Jackson Kearney is a 22 year-old man, born in 1992, living in his parent’s house. His interests include reading, writing, watching TV and Netflix, listening to records sought out in stores far from home, playing video games, writing songs, tripping on cough syrup, going for stoned midnight walks, and practicing magick. He left his first semester of college for psychological reasons after seeking a medical diagnosis for his malaise.

Elizabeth Williams is a 21 year-old woman, born in 1993, close to graduating college with dual degrees in Film and Psychology.

Kuwabara Kuwabara is a discordant combination of original documentary, scripted, and found footage compiled and composed in an attempt to express the existential confusion of the filmmaker and her peers’ situation. Co-written by and starring her oldest and closest friend, Jackson Kearney, the project also serves as a way of cathartically externalizing deep-rooted fears and generating a sense of meaning in their young-adult lives.
