Director Statement

As the project's director, I want to explore the murky dance between the individual and society, as well as how societal outlook can mould and impact our behaviours. The narrative centres on a lone person who goes shopping and confronts social expectations and prejudices. The environment is a sophisticated web of perceptions where anxiety and curiosity are intertwined.

I intend to tackle this project by concentrating on the main character's moving journey as well as the conflicts and interactions that result from their peculiar shopping experience. The audience will feel uncomfortable and watched over as a result of the usage of sidelong looks and whispered conversations.
The story is about more than simply a shopping spree; it's about finding one's self and the difficulties that come with deviating from conventional expectations.

Making a visually compelling and emotionally engaging movie is my aim as a director. I want to captivate the audience and keep them engaged as the tale unfolds by using odd exchanges and enigmatic emotions.
