Echo

Short Film, 5min, 2013

A young woman stands alone in a public square and recalls a haunting memory. The only witness to this act is a camera that films her from different angles. The intimate story she tells, lives of the images that only exist in her own and the viewer’s imagination. It reflects on how new electronic media of communication may blur the lines of geographical distance and true physical presence. For a moment, she finds herself in an uncanny triangular liaison between her lover, his father and herself. The situation is so ungraspable that only to her, its subtle peculiarity seems intrusively present.
