Private Project


Angela finds herself in a mysterious place where a stranger takes her on a journey of memories and emotions. She goes through the five stages of grief while visiting five stages of her life before she is able to learn and accept what has happened to her.

'Quadratura' is an experimental short film about visiting your life's memories and lessons before ending this life and starting another. Filled with riddles, metaphors, poetry, dance and colour, 'Quadratura' is a unique painting of a girl's tragic yet beautiful story.

Director Statement

'Quadratura' is the most special project I've had the chance to work on so far. The idea came to me three years ago, when in my mind it was just a short story with two characters in one location. However, with the help of the writer Ryan, producer Carl and the rest of the talented crew & cast, 'Quadratura' grew and became something so much bigger than I ever expected. At its core, 'Quadratura' is a simple story about love, loss and life, and I hope that the viewers enjoy this little journey of colours, emotions and poetic film-making.
