SYNOPSIS

Different groups of friends wander in a rainy, windy, dark world. They spend time together, trying to get away from their depressing jobs, meandering constantly towards the mystery of new possibilities.

DIRECTOR’S STATEMENT

In this film, we follow groups of friends in Sri Lanka, Peru, and Taiwan who are trying to change their realities through fantasy and imagination. We see them in their normal life and also in mysterious situations, the difference between fantasy and reality is difficult to distinguish as the film advances.

Using a 360 camera to shoot the film and virtual reality to edit it, we discover little by little that a camera is a machine, a human, and an alien. By experimenting with the tools of cinema I try to show how my ideas were taken and transformed by each person who participated in the film. In the end, the film tries to feed the curiosity of the spectator by proposing different questions and mysterious possibilities.

INTERVIEW
What inspired you to start this project?
To continue connecting people from countries that are not usually connected between themselves. To explore how my own ideas and fantasies are taken and transformed by each person in a different context. For the first time in my films, I want to share the adventure of traveling with the actors of the film and how this can influence the film. This is an important difference from my previous film, The Human Surge, where the countries were separated blocks, now, they are connected in the form of a spiral.
To keep on exploring the possibilities of different Cinema Tools to produce different images and sounds that can bring new questions and thoughts. In this case using a 360 camera to shoot and virtual reality to edit.
Is there any scene or emotion you want the audience to remember after watching this movie?
Curiosity. To leave the film with new questions in their heads. I think feeding our own curiosity is very important and original films can help to do this.
