The Last Shadow

One of the aims making this film has been to reimagine a form of being, climbing down to the underworld of the psyche to encounter the shadow aspect and bringing it to light both metaphorically and literally, as well as reflect on current and near future dystopian systems and individual’s place within one through the expressive combination of both contemporary visual art and filmmaking. This work serves as a rite of passage for a lost persona who is returned back to a truer, unlayered self not only by discovering but rather remembering the core essence with the help of nature and its primal elements. The work came across as a conflation of Arta’s ongoing research ”The sublime in nature and liminal spaces” and Prem’s research on ”Cinematography in Tondoscope (circular aspect ratio)”.
