A film that explores loneliness and isolation and what being alone teaches us about ourselves. Between the routine inside and the promise of activity outside, everything blurs and blends in this cocoon that is also a window.
What happens if we stay alone, too long in the same place? Do we experiment in ways we’ve never tried? Do we focus on getting more sleep? Do we pay more attention to how we prepare food? Or do we explore that strange and elusive idea of getting to know ourselves?
When we spend time alone there are two worlds: the one we create and the one we are separated from. The one we see through the window and the one no one can guess exists inside. This film by Rawane Nassif pushes away any idea of boredom caused by loneliness to think about — and to make us feel — other things. The repetitive intimacy of the place we inhabit is set in contrast to what’s outside. But it’s all a game and the goal is self-knowledge. When being alone doesn’t mean being lonely. A film for all the only children in the world. (Ana Cabral Martins)
