Am I alive?

This story is about fighting against losing ones life in the big city.

The main character has drowned in the city routine. She stopped recognising the reality and turned into the thoughtless, empty, numb to the pain and happiness robot. All her daily weekly movements and locations she used to come started mix with each other.
And then to help herself she began to move, move faster, wider, higher, accelerate to reach her own limit and reborn.

Director Biography - Zinaida Yastrzhembskaya

Hello everyone!
You can call me just Zi :)
I'm 22 years old, film and advertising actress.
This year I learned about plastic theater for the first time and discovered such a genre as cino dance. Then I worked up courage to finally try myself in this. It took me for two weeks to find the topic I want to tell about and after that my talented mate and I shooted this story for 6 shifts.
This film "Am I alive?" is an experiment and a challenge for me and I want to believe that you will like it. Thank you so much for attention!
