Buried in Light
2016, India/ France, 16mm, 7 min, colour, sound

Somewhere in the forests of the sub-conscious, a sleepwalker journeys through the remains of a lost city. Here the people and animals have become part of the architecture, the finer details of which are revealed through the moving light of the sun. Echoes of a possible past are heard in all corners. This place is now a somnambular archaeological site, lost in the no man's land between dream and memory.
