Evguenia Men ‘Rainy Red’

Synopsis: Cette histoire se déroule grâce à l'imagerie surréaliste , est une prise existentielle sur le processus créatif et de cycle de vie qui draine émotionnellement autant qu'il vivifie . Un jeune artiste se sent coupé du monde dans un petit appartement entouré par un fluide et nébuleuse (lire: incroyablement stressant ) monde. Elle se trouve debout à l'impasse entre ce qu'elle veut et ce qu'elle craint . Cet isolement affectif, physique , mental et spirituel l'a finalement propulse à explorer son monde intérieur . Réalité et fiction entrent en collision en tant qu'artiste aux prises contre son blocage créatif déchirante . Impossible de percer l'enchevêtrement de pensées invétérés , elle prend des médicaments pour la mélancolie et ses souvenirs et fantasmes commencer à fusionner . Tentative de forger quelque chose de beau quand le cerveau refuse de coopérer abjecte , elle utilise elle-même et sa chambre comme une toile de souvenirs et les expériences de ses moments les plus sombres pour créer un nouvel art vivante qui réaffirme la valeur de la vie elle-même.

Cast: Irina Kharatishvili
