VISAFF 2022 Submissions Closed



A sensory, lyrical, and gnomic exploration of memory and loss, This film is a meditation on loss,
filmmaking and cadence of an unstable relationship, It strives to follow a narrative trajectory, but
itself becomes a poetic elegy.

Elegy poster


A series of circular, rhyming narrative repetitions, laying out desire and anxiety, with the chance that a particular dream might transcend away from the disappointment of reality, into a sought of
spiritual transcendence.

The geography of the unconscious world and cinematic desires juxtapose over the topography of separating lovers as an aching journey: we must betray thememories of the ones we loved to love again. “Elegy” is an attempt to construct a cinematic reality that projects the unconscious imagery of a poet in grief.

In my work I am trying to subtly deal with memory and personal politics. The pursuit of sculpting a film is “the unraveling of the self.” My background as an architect helps me reveal the temporal and spatial structures inherent to the cinema and the architecture as they both articulate the lived space.
My work delves into the interaction between poetry, architecture, and cinema to capture the cinematic essence of our existential experience. I am intrigued at the spaces constructed by
cinema in the mind, reflecting the inherent ephemeral architecture of the human mind.
