“Whim” mirrors the effort to find connections to other lives and species in order to be understood.
The uneasy feeling of being away from one’s own kind and not being able to fulfill the need for empathy begins to show itself in other ways. Not being able to speak and being understood paves the way for silent outbursts. Sometimes this manifests itself by waking up screaming from a dream, or sometimes by starting to cry on a bench next to a train station. Our character in this project is far from his society and his own kind, and his mind is begging to be understood. Here we are the spectators of the communication effort that he tries to establish with another genre to express himself. This serie which shot in 2022 by using natural light, is presented to the audience in a dreamy color tones.
