Experiencing Interruptions?


Desolate is a short three-minute film. It's hard for me to place the film in a specific genre, but I think it's closest to experimental. The film has a very simple storyline, which is set in a fictional environment. The main aspect is the dramatic situation where the character is an obstacle to himself. The film presents itself as dreamlike, schizophrenic and disturbing. Although it contains a simple plot, it contains a lot of motifs or ideas that could come from the film. I tried to present the film using the iceberg method, that is, the film can be about something different for each viewer, and each viewer must discover the values ​​and message of the film on the basis of the presented material. I feel the thoughts of my past self are being portrayed in the film. So for me, this picture is a release and a relief from the past.
