Distance – the length of space between two points; remoteness, detachment. In a work devoid of anecdote and dramaturgical twists and turns, the filmmaker experiments with the borderlands between film and moving graphics. Two people and the space that lies between them. Incessantly repeated attempts at dialogue, captured in a game of typographical symbols. The repeated gestures, words and signals create a singular mantra of meanings, endeavours to name and demarcate the personal boundaries of mental independence from a coexistence which is often a complicating factor.
