It's getting dark.


Director's Statement

While on an artist residency program in Fukuoka, I happened to discover an interesting 'time.' I conducted an experiment by triggering multi-layered narratives simply through the flow of time, in a single, stationary frame. I imagined formal suspenses that occur among people to be transferred to a relationship between light and darkness, questioning the position of the observer.
