What is the meaning of an artist’s life in a war-torn country?
An actress and director live as a couple pursuing their dream to find themselves in filmmaking. The film actually depicts the process of making the very same film. The two never forget the atrocities of the war their nation is in; yet they still feel they can’t sacrifice their creative personalities to it.
Their creative and personal relationship helps them feel part of the universe, overcome their fears and recover their identity.

Director Statement

«Particles» is an experimental film I started shooting without a script or preparation. I had just wanted to pick up my camera and shoot what surrounded me. I didn’t know where the story would lead me and how it would end up.
The result is a docufiction about the author’s life. It’s a reflection of events around myself such as the war in the east of my country and climate change as well as a search for life harmony.
It’s an auteur project depicting the environment and the characters’ condition in late 2019.
