Synopsis: The film explores the spatial dimensions of a being who alternately enters and exits a fragmented world of projections where thoughts, memories and dreams blend into a strange loop of treacherous images. The film is a poetic prelude to my longer short film titled ‘On Floating Bodies’. 



Bio: Sibi Sekar was born on April 29th, 1997 in Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. He fell in love with cinema at an early age upon viewing the works of filmmakers such as Luis Buñuel and Sergei Parajanov. Sibi began making experimental films and directed his first short films, “Thoughts Out Of Season”, “Night Train Light On Track “ and “Teal City,” during his postgraduate years. Sibi has since directed, produced & edited one feature film, and ten short films. His works have been screened at over thirty festivals across five continents. He recently graduated from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras with a master’s degree in Humanities and Social Sciences and is currently working on explorative films that are primarily an ascetic representation of resistance. The thematic dispositions of his films concern the symbolic depiction of being, nothingness and the transcendental space.
