Ictus is an exploration of the themes of Cultural Identity and Risky Behaviour. In the film, the protagonist’s sounds and physical actions were used as a tool to disrupt social conventions within inner-city London. The film presents, through the senses (touch, sound and imagery), a personal experience of London as a city, and the emotional spaces the city creates. We focused on a few overwhelming scenes of busy traffic, aiming to visually represent feelings of vertigo one might experience in relation to the movement of the city, such as the hoards of people walking over the concrete, helicopters flying overhead, a crowded tube carriage and so on. Throughout the film, an emotional buildup is inferred- represented through the sounds and actions slowly becoming louder and grander, eventually leading to the dramatic final scene.
