My daughter's name is Maya. I've been told that the word maya means illusion in Hindu philosophy. As I watch her growing up, spinning like a top around me, I realize that her childhood is not something I can grasp but rather (like the wind) something I feel tenderly brushing across my cheek. Eleven years later, I pull out my 16mm Bolex camera once again and she allows me to film her, different but somehow the same. - Lynne Sachs

Sachs is unabashedly in love with her daughter Maya who runs in circles around the filmmaker. It's heartbreakingly beautiful to see at about 5 and again 11 years later, a beautiful creature who is now at eye level, looks directly at the camera, but is always running away, again in circles, away, but always close.
