Missing Moments

"Missing Moments" is a musical film characterized by the silence that inherently results from the deep understanding between two people. Their understanding of surviving the cruelty and insensitivity of human beings is reflected in their silences. The short film silently depicts the freedom of their bodies, seeing and moving through the world with newness. By tapping into this graceful yet powerful human persistence, this film is a venture into translating the journey of silence into a language of the freedom of bodies, in dialogue through thoughts and music, beyond conceptions of rules, regulations and societal borders.

Director Statement

We are the practitioners of music, literature, performance and visual art. When we came to know each other, we realized that we all have interest in thinking and exploring the life of togetherness. We felt that when we are together we stand for something. It leads us to think and materialize a film based on the idea of freedom. Freedom from situations created by the system of beliefs . Initially it was very difficult for us to find sufficient fund for the making of this film because of the content.As we processed the making of the film, intimate friends came forward to help us by providing whatever they can. We hope our decision to choose 'freedom 'as the content of the film helped us to depict frames that could suggest a life of collective beyond rules and regulations.
