The lotus is recognized as a symbol of hope and peace. Its root serves as a strong foundation beneath the earth, anchoring the stem to its flowering bud. Similar to a community of artists, singular columns of air work together, breathing life into form. Without a network of healthy channels, a plant cannot survive. Like the impression of images on celluloid film, it is the negative spaces that give meaning and structure to the forms around it. The mission of the Sacramento Asian Pacific Film Festival is symbolized in the lotus root, which exists to support the growth and development of the whole.
