Locarno FF 2021 (competition)
A young woman is looking for an apartment in a busy metropolis, while overcoming the overwhelming sensation of alienation and trying to build relationships. The film uses a combination of stylised movements and expressive dance to discover new forms of film language with an emphasis on the role of sound and pictures over dialogue. As she explores the spaces, a new meaning is given to the seeming banalities of everyday life. This is a physical dance and dialogue with the void and the question of space identity in an anonymous cityscape.
