This experimental film is presented in tableaux style and is a poetic vignette of an individual who deals with eternal struggle and unceasing contemplation, all while being consumed by the burdens of conditioned humanization.
After the footage was processed, I discovered half of the footage was shot with light leakage, which is what caused the blurred and bleeding effect. However, I recognized an affinity between the dream-like footage and what was originally shot. The effect adds a certain whimsical feel to the film.
