Freedom

This is an experimental film titled “Freedom”. The film is inspired by the movements that COVID-19 brought to female rights, which means an increasing risk of violence against women.
It tells the story of a girl who has suffered domestic violence form her husband, but due to lockdown, she does not know how to ask for help and cannot escape from the house. Therefore, she has a desire for freedom, but suffers as a result of fantasies and illusions.
The film adopts a non-linear narrative structure, focusing on expressing the girl's inner fantasies. It also makes use of imagery that combines external objects with the internal spiritual world, such as goldfish and cans, to further explore her spiritual world. In the process of production, brilliant colours were combined with heavy themes to enrich the layers of the film.
