This short fiction is made from found footage with an original script and sound design. It operates in an uncanny space between experimental and narrative film – exploring edges of memory, recognition, anonymity and repetition. It conjures the layered, immersive space of dreams. The point of view is a disembodied and wandering eye; a voice in the dark.

Every forty seconds a person commits suicide in the world. The Acrobat is the story of one of them
(Based on a story written by Italo Calvino)
Couples who are living together both work to make their ends meet. The man works night shifts from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. and the woman works during the day from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. they have to work all week even on weekends and whenever one of them comes home the other should get ready to leave home. We follow them during the day at their workplace and home in short moments which they see each other there to capture their loneliness and agony. In the end, we see them in places where they are all alone (street, subway, and workplace).
