Synopsis:

Sai is a location scout.  Oom is an art director.  They are working together at the same film company.  Two years later, Sai is still doing the same thing.  Oom, however, has moved on.  When Sai’s computer crashes, she finds that the photos for an entire year of her life have vanished.  Among them, are the ones of Oom. Some people pass through our life for only a brief moment.  Without any photos to remind us of them… it’s like they never even existed.


Director’s Statement:

In the old days, when I started taking photos, waiting for the film to be developed was very exciting.  I would get 36 photos that had nothing to do with each other.  Often I wouldn’t remember what the picture was or why I took it.  I would have to create my own narrative to connect the events in the photos taken months apart.  This film is told in a similar fashion, comprising 36 shots that are not directly related to each other.  It’s like looking at someone’s roll of film and forming a narrative of a certain period of their life.
