About

This is a short film description of a room, and the way light (coming through a window) illuminates papers on a desk. An attempt to use color, camera movement and editing to transform everyday surroundings into a poetic rendering of human emotions. The attempt of the film, I believe, is first to describe a feeling of restfulness and silence that come from being alone; second to hint at a kind of pain, lying beneath the surface of aloneness, that comes out of a sense of a violent – though not fully visible – past.
